Student Placement for 2019-2020

BGIS Parents,

It is hard to believe, but the 2018-19 school year is coming to a close. Soon we will begin looking at class placements for next school year. Your child’s teacher, learning support teachers, counselor and administrators all have input into class placement to make sure each child is in their most suitable learning environment. For our incoming 3rd graders we get great information from the feeder schools to help make our decisions and create balanced classes for the next year.

We like to offer parents the opportunity to let us know what environment you view as most appropriate for your child. While it is not possible for you to choose your child’s teacher, we do want to make sure all of your concerns are addressed when making next year’s placement. If you should have special concerns you would like us to consider,  please note them in the appropriate section provided on this form linked below.

You might include:  a description of the amount of structure/flexibility needed for the learning environment in which you feel your child works best, or a past experience with a teacher or another student that you feel should be avoided for 2019-20.

Please refrain from specific requests of individual teachers or friends for placement as this is not something we can accommodate. We work very hard to make the best possible class lists and consider all of the given information.

Once we begin making class lists, it is difficult to make changes. For this reason this form must be completed NO LATER THAN May 15, 2019 to be guaranteed consideration.

For our new families, we are excited to have you as part of our school family. For our returning families we are excited to plan year 2 at BGIS. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our office. (205) 439-1600
