Parent Input Form: Student placement is a team decision based on student academic performance and needs, behavior, teacher style, service needs, and classroom designs. At CES, we welcome parent input regarding their child’s learning environment. We do not accept requests for specific teachers. We want you to know that your request will be given serious consideration, however completion of this form does not guarantee a specific class placement.
