Class Placement Input Forms

Class Placement Input Period Now Open! 

Elementary schools across the Westwind School Division utilize the following process when creating class lists. As students are placed into a class for the upcoming school year, all of the following are considered and balanced:

  • Overall Strengths
  • Peer Relationships
  • Potential Conflicts
  • Matching Student Personality/Needs to Teacher Strengths
  • Social Emotional Needs
  • Additional Supports needed (for example, IPPs or Educational Assistant support)

It is very complex to find a balance of all of those variables. We value parent input into this
process; however, after class lists are completed, a request to move classes, though seemingly
small, has compounding effects on the balance of those areas. Therefore, please be aware of
the following information:

  • We ask that all parent input happens before class lists are made. If you would like to
    provide us with information, print and fill in the back of this parent input page, and turn it
    in to our office (Please drop it off at the office or scan and email it to This form must be turned in by May 3. Late forms will not be
    considered. If you have information that you may have passed on already (this year or
    previous years), please fill in this form to ensure we do not miss it.
  • Requests made directly to teachers will not be considered. These sorts of requests
    can put teachers in a professionally compromising position with their colleagues and an
    awkward position with their community friends.
  • Requests made for specific teachers will not be considered.
  • Changes to class lists will not be made after class lists are completed.

Please ensure you submit the Class Placement Input Form by May 3rd.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this delicate process.

Should you have any questions or wish to discuss your child’s needs further, feel free to contact the office.

Together, let's make it a great year for our kids!
