Placement

The placement of students is one of the most important parts of organizing for an upcoming year. A considerable amount of time, energy, and thought goes into this complex process. Many factors are considered, including (but not limited to):

  • Learning needs
  • Race
  • Ethnic background
  • Social needs
  • Gender

In order to make the placement process effective, we provide the opportunity for parents/guardians to submit their thoughts on a specific form, due prior to April Vacation each year. As our goal is consistency, we request that the form be the sole form of communication, rather than personal letters or narratives. We also request that parents/guardians avoid requesting a teacher by name. The three areas for your input – Educational Goals, Social Information, and Student Learning Style – give us the most valuable information and help us make the best decisions. Please understand that while we do our best to take these requests into consideration, we cannot make any guarantees. What we can guarantee is that we will do our best to create balanced classes that ensure a highly effective working environment for all Butler School children. Placement is a very intricate and thoughtful process that elicits input from many people who have in-depth knowledge of students. It is our best thinking that ultimately results in class lists that are designed to benefit all students. Therefore, once assignments have been made, they are considered final. Making a change in one child's placement after the fact can create an adverse "domino effect" that can undermine the carefully planned arrangement of an entire grade.
