Every year, we must make adjustments to classes and staff based on the actual number of students enrolled in each school. We understand that moving teachers to another assignment and shifting students into new classes is difficult for everyone involved, so each decision is thoughtfully considered by a team representing teachers, family engagement staff and administrators.
