Dear Parents and Guardians,
Our school is really looking at some progressive ways to place students in classrooms next year. First, the kindergarten teachers, reading specialist, and student achievement teacher are coming up with a plan for kindergarten placement. We often get 200 students that we have little to no knowledge of their academic or social needs registering for kindergarten. We place students randomly in a classroom that may not be a good fit for them or their needs. We are currently working on a kindergarten screening process that would give us academic information but also let us get to know the whole child before assigning them to a classroom. Please be aware that students would start in classroom rotations, have opportunities to learn our system called PRIDE, and use social interactions with play for a couple weeks at the beginning of the year. Once we screen students, the team would then make the best decision for each child based on observations made, concerns about student behavior and academic need, teacher influence, and input collected from parents. The state of Arizona is piloting similar screeners for K-2 classrooms and if they determine what needs we need to meet, we would adjust our screener to meet the requirements of the state. Other grade levels will be meeting to place students for the next school year based on evidence collected this school year. Parents will once again have input using the form that we send home in the spring. Please provide any input about your child that would help us select the best teacher for your child next year. We use data and teacher observation to select the best placement we can accommodate. Our goal is to provide the best academic and social environment to help your child be successful with classrooms that are equally distributed.
Lake View Primary School is a positive, safe environment where an enthusiasm for learning is shared by all. The staff is dedicated to educating all students to high levels of academic growth with an emphasis on reading, writing, and math. Through teamwork, the Lake View community is developing children who are socially, emotionally, and academically successful.
