Class Building

posted Apr 30, 2019, 2:07 PM by Gord Donaldson
The process of organizing students into classes will take place through May, June and over the summer. Administration, classroom teachers, and Special Education teachers spend many hours forming classes. To assist us in making our decisions, we use many sources of data. Our focus is always the creation of balanced classes that are based upon learning style, gender equity, academic balance, instructional groupings, and peer compatibility.

If you feel that our staff is missing some information about your child’s class placement, and you would like to provide input for the upcoming school year for your child's class placement, please click here to fill out a form that will go to Mr. Donaldson. This is not a form that all families would fill out, but only for those who feel there is special consideration requiring feedback. We will not consider any requests for teachers by name, as our teachers often change grades and/or move schools right up until the Labour Day weekend as enrollment shifts within the school. Your information will be considered along with all of the other relevant criteria developed by the school for determining class organization. Please complete the form by May 21st if you would like your input considered.
We will consider all information, however, the final decision rests with the school.

If you are planning to move out of the John T. Tuck Public School area before September 2019, please let the office know as soon as possible, so that we can take that into consideration.
