Information Regarding Class Placements for 2016 2017

Each June, Valley Manor School staff engages in an exhaustive process of creating class lists for the following school year. Our goal is to place students in a setting that is appropriate for each child individually and for the group as a whole.  The final placement of a child is a school-based decision that is made using, for example, some of the following criteria:


When grouping students for a new school year, we consider many factors including:

Academic needs

Social needs (individual and group)

Academic diversity of the group

Special needs

Additional Classroom assistance (EA Support)

Independence / dependence

Role models

Positive / negative student relationships

Balance of males to females

Consultation with other staff involved (resource teacher, consultants, etc.)

Receiving teachers


Due to the complexities of placing students in classes, decisions are considered complete and final by the time report cards go home.  Students will be made aware of who their homeroom teacher is when they receive their June report card.
