Class Assignments for 2019-20

Class Assignments for School Year 2019-20

Message from the OES Administration:

2019-2020 Class Assignments

At Oakton, we strive for healthy, heterogeneous student enrollment in each classroom. We have a process in place whereby teachers, specialists, and administrators confer with grade level teams to make recommendations that will result in a well-balanced school setting.  These settings include a broad range of academic levels, behavioral characteristics, and learning styles.  Teacher styles are also taken into consideration when completing teacher assignments.

To further outline the process, there are eight areas used in the determination of class assignments.  These include:

  • Heterogeneous groupings

  • Gender balance

  • Balance of special needs

  • Peer interactions

  • Special services

  • Learning environment

  • Health and medical concerns

  • Equitable distribution of students

These criteria play a role in the final decision for assignment. While parent input is welcomed, a request for an individual teacher cannot be granted.  Assigning students is a complex and educational process that we take seriously. We have developed procedures to best match students with classroom settings and teachers.

Parents are welcome to share information about their child here. All input must be shared by Friday, May 24.

Thank you.  We are looking forward to another great year at OES!
