Student Placement 2021-2022



Dear Ross Road Parents/Guardians,


We are now beginning the process of planning student placement for the upcoming school year. Ross Road staff members take student placement very seriously and go through a meticulous process. Assignment of students to classes is determined by a team, including our School Based Resource Team, classroom and non-enrolling teachers, support staff and administrators. Our class placement process ensures that thoughtful consideration of each child's social, emotional, and academic needs is aligned with the creation of balanced and effective learning environments. It is important that students learn to work and socialize in environments of diversity.


Please understand that with the complexity of class building, each consideration implies limitations in decision making for your child's placement. Please be assured that the same care and consideration will be given to the placement of each child whether or not this form is completed. The information you provide will be used along with our information and criteria for the creation of balanced and effective classrooms that maximize growth for all learners. Due to the complex nature of the class placement process, it may not be possible to meet parent/guardian and student input.


Please note that information sheets will not be accepted if names of staff members are used in outlining your input.


Our school organization is dependent on accurate enrolment numbers. If you are leaving Ross Road, and your child will not be registered for school in September 2021, please inform the office staff as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued support and partnership in this complex multi-level process of arranging educationally sound and balanced classes.
