It's hard to believe it is already time to be rolling out staffing announcements, but here we are...
The staffing arrangements for the 2012-2013 school year are in place. They reflect our configuration transition from mono grade classrooms in primary toward multi-age classrooms, and increased flexibility in the upper grades, including shared ownership of the program across disciplines and embracing the advantages of multi-aged groupings when possible. Changes in grade level reflect individual teacher professional desire to grow and develop, as well as my own judgement about the continued success of our program. We will have a seven period day in the middle school, once again, with a more robust elective selection at the end of the day. The teachers are thrilled to know their assignments and have already begun doubling down on planning for next year!
Very soon, you will receive a survey requesting input into the particular learning environment most conducive to your child's needs. It will focus on academic, social, and emotional needs, and will be limited to those categories in order that we can design balanced class lists for next year.
