FAQ'S RELATED TO TEACHER, STUDENTS, & CLASS SIZE


Q: WHEN WILL WE KNOW OUR TEACHER'S NAME?  

A: It is our goal to share student placements with you as quick as we can. We hope to have this information completed by the middle of August and be updated via the BR portal.  PLEASE NOTE: These dates may be delayed if we receive an influx of late registrations. Although Kindergarten Registration takes place February so we may properly prepare for the fall, many students are not registered until August.  Please be patient with this process.

 

 

Q: CAN I REQUEST A CERTAIN TEACHER FOR MY STUDENT?

A: Requesting a particular teacher is not encouraged because we cannot guarantee each request will be honored. 

 

Q: APPROXIMATELY HOW MANY KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS DO YOU EXPECT IN THE FALL?

A: Though it varies from year to year, an average Kindergarten class is approximately 225-275 students. Please help us get an early, accurate number by not only registering your student, but encouraging your friends and neighbors to do the same.

 

Q: HOW MANY KINDERGARTEN CLASSROOMS ARE THERE?  

A: Though it varies from year to year, during the 2017-2018 academic year Mitchell has 10 Kindergarten classes -- The number of classes needed each year directly relates to the number of students registered....yet another valuable reason to register your student early. 

 

Q: HOW MANY KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS WILL BE ASSIGNED TO A CLASSROOM AND TEACHER?

A: Though it varies from year to year, typical classroom size for Kindergarten is 20 to 30 students. 


Q: WHAT DOES AN INCLUSION CLASS MEAN?

A: Inclusion: Is a term used to describe service that places students with disabilities in general education classrooms with appropriate support services.


Example: a student with speech delay meets with a speech therapist while at school. A student with a reading delay reads extra each week with a specialized reading teacher. Inclusion classrooms typically have one homeroom/grade level teacher as the lead classroom teacher and also a second teacher for part of the day who offers extra support.
