Family input for 2020-21

April 16, 2020


Hello, Lydiksen Families -


As we plan for the upcoming 2020-21 school year, we will begin formulating classes based on our best estimate of enrollment projections for next year.


In arranging classes, school staff spends time creating balanced classes for the benefit of all students. Collectively, we review the composition of each class with the goal of creating productive student groups in a positive learning environment. 


Staff will apply a common set of criteria to form class lists. This shared approach considers student academics, quality of citizenship, study habits, and gender balance. Our priority is to group students for instructional purposes. Although we realize that some families have preferences for specific teachers, we cannot place children in classes on this basis.


If you have information about your child that his/her current teacher is not aware of, you have the option of completing this Google Form no later than Friday, April 24 to share that information. Do not identify specific teachers in your comments as teacher requests cannot be taken; forms that identify specific teachers will be discarded.


Thank you for placing your trust in our experience and knowledge to achieve our goal of balance and equal access. We will do all that we can to ensure that every child has a pleasurable, positive and successful 2020-21 school year at Lydiksen.
