The Board of Education has a policy in place allowing families to make teacher requests for the following school year.
The Board of Education recognizes the right of parents of elementary students to request certain teachers for educational reseasons. The following procedure will be utilized by the Roxbury Central School District.
1. The requests must be in written form and given to the principal by May 1.
2. Specific educational reasons for the request must be included in the letter.
3. A time and date may be arranged with the child's parent/guardian, teacher, and the principal to discuss the request.
4. No requests qill be honored after the established deadline.
Parents will be given the opportunity to request teachers but will be apprised that requests may or may not be honored depending on the situation and that the classes are grouped heterogeneously. In order to preserve the desired classroom climate and to provide a balance in such areas as size, gender, and ability, it may be necessary to deny parental requests. When the decision regarding the ultimate placements cannot be honors, the parents will be contacted in writing regarding the decision prior to the end of the school year.
