Every site within my district sets up classes the same way: using pink and blue cards. Some sites assign teacher names to the piles of cards, and other sites—like mine, label the piles Teacher A, Teacher B, Teacher C, etc. Personally, I prefer when teachers form classes and submit the pink/blue cards with teachers’ names already assigned to each stack. My principal and I went ahead and assigned teacher names to the classes, but we’ve had to make quite a few changes due to things such as: certain students needing a male or female teacher, students with behavioral needs requiring a particular teacher, and certain classes getting most of the students with IEPs. Although we set guidelines for how each class should be set up (equally distribute behaviors, IEP students, high/low kids, and ELs), it seems as though certain grade-levels didn’t put very much thought into setting up next year’s classes!
