Class Placement for 2020-21



Dear Families,

Each year at this time, the school staff begins the very important process of placing students in classrooms for the next year. Our goal each year is to ensure that all of our children have the best possible learning environment. The staff spends many hours and gives much thought and consideration to making the appropriate placements for each of our students for the following year.

We ask for your adherence to our policy that we do not take requests for specific teachers for the following year into consideration and ask that you do not make such requests of our staff.  It is our professional obligation to meet the needs of all of our students. Rest assured we have our students’ best interests at heart. We consider student placement one of the most important things we do and we spend much time getting it right. 

The process we use at Little Lake takes into consideration numerous factors and areas of input: 

  • Academic & social needs
  •  Staff input
  •  Parent input
  • Special needs
  • Compatibility with other students
  • Equalization of class loads
  • Language ability (English Learners)
  • Overall class balance

As you can see, a lot of care, consideration, and thought are put into this very important task.  If you feel there is additional information we need in order to best place your child, please fill out a Student Profile Form below. The Student Profile Form will give you a chance to list specific educational considerations; however, again we will not accept any requests for specific teachers.  Please email it to me ( by May 1.

Little Lake has a very strong teaching staff that will do a fine job of educating your child with your cooperation and support. Please be assured that with or without input from you, we will review each child's needs individually and select the classroom in which we believe he/she will learn best.
