Class/ Teacher Request 2017-18

Parents who would like to request a specific class or teacher may do from by completing the form below and returning it to the school between June 1 to June 15, 2017.

Teachers and Administrators take the responsibility of creating pod lists very seriously and put much time and effort into creating balanced pods. Parents are welcome to make requests for their child/children to be in a particular pod. Please remember we enroll pods, not classes. This means that students will share two teachers and  both classes  with both sets of peers throughout their year. When producing pod lists we take a number of criteria into consideration including:

-intellectual, social, emotional and physical development
-learning styles and strengths of students
-degree of independence in student work habits
-integration of Special Education students
-grouping certain types of learners for EA support
-balancing levels of achievement
-balancing gender numbers
-social compatibility of groups and individuals

Please note that request must have an education reason or purpose (being with friends is not an educational purpose).

Were possible, we will honour parent requests but please understand that we must also work within the Ministry of Education guidelines on class size (maximum 28 or 30) and composition.  Therefore, it may not be possible to make all requests happen.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mrs. Reid at heather_reid@sd34.bc.ca.
