Class Assignments for 2023-2024 School Year

District administrators want to remind families of about the DRAFT nature of student schedules and/or homeroom placements they may view over the summer. Scheduling occurs continuously as families move away or join our school communities. This means an individual student’s classroom assignment continues to shift over the summer.

In mid-August, the district rolls over systems to prepare for the new academic year. This sometimes reveals a DRAFT of student schedules or homeroom placements. Families should be reminded that anything they may see should be considered a draft until their schools communicate that placements are finalized. This will take place just prior to the start of the 2023-2024 school year. Because sharing inaccurate information may create unnecessary confusion as placements continue to be adjusted, families are discouraged to share draft placements or schedules with students or other families prior to finalized schedules being announced near August 31.
