Dear Parents/ Guardians of the Junior/Senior High School,
We are happy to share that student schedules and teaming assignment are posted on School Tool. There were a number of conditions that went into designing this year’s academic program under the current COVID-19 pandemic. Please review the following information and rationale:
- As a school we are at a 95% completion on all student schedules, however;
o Study halls have not yet been assigned
o AIS classes will be assigned once we convene the NWEA benchmark assessment in September
o If your schedule shows 5 or less classes, a counselor will reach out to you
o Schedules are subject to change as our program evolves
o Distance Learning Classes are currently being reviewed and might be altered
- Teams were developed using the following method:
o Students were separated alphabetically and priorities were given to keeping family members and children in the same household together on the same team.
o We then reviewed the special education students and students with special circumstances.
o Once we separated the list we reviewed each course section and adjusted the team to create evenly divided groups that allowed for a safe learning environment.
o The balance between green and white is very intentional and essential to maintaining balance not only for the classes but also for transportation.
o In the event you wish to request a team change the following will be considered:
§ Transportation issues;
§ Medical needs / concerns;
§ Requests will not be honored for social reasons.
§ Each request will be reviewed by the administration and guidance department to evaluate the effects of the change on the overall balance of teams.
