Student Placement for the 2014/2015 School Year
Each spring, the SIES
faculty members work collaboratively to create classroom groupings that support
optimal student growth for the upcoming school year.
We systematically look at both individual and group
needs. Teachers work with the other
teachers on their grade level to create classroom groups of students. Groupings are reviewed by guidance, gifted
and talented, and special education.
Specific teachers are then assigned to each group by the principal.
Classroom Placement at Sullivan’s Island Elementary
Does my child’s current classroom teacher have any input
in the placement process?
Yes. Your child’s
current teacher will look carefully at individual needs and work with the other
grade level teachers to provide a strong supportive classroom for your
child. The classroom teachers do not
assign specific teachers.
How can parents provide input?
If there is something that you would like to share about your
child’s learning style or learning environment needs, please feel free to share
in a hard copy letter. Put your letter
in a sealed envelope and label it “Placement” and turn into the office. Emails, faxes, etc. will not be
accepted. Specific requests for teachers
will not be accepted.
May I request a specific teacher for my child?
No. Specific teacher
requests are not accepted.
Are classrooms leveled according to academic achievement
Our classrooms are heterogeneously grouped. There is a wide range of abilities,
personalities, and interests represented in each
classroom. We also balance boy/girl
When and how will student placement be shared?
Placement information will be mailed home on August 1, 2014.
Why isn’t student placement shared earlier?
There are many
factors that can and do change over the summer.
Enrollment increase/decrease, reductions in staffing, personnel changes,
new students with special education needs, etc.
continue to fluctuate well into July.
