While you are not able to request a particular teacher for your child, your input is welcome regarding the teacher personality and instructional style that would best help your child grow academically, socially, and spiritually. In late spring, a Student Placement Request will be made available to parents via Renweb (Resource Documents) and the ECS office. Parents may use this form to communicate their child’s learning style, personality preferences, and friend requests. ECS staff will meet to discuss each child’s needs and will work hard to place students with the teachers and classmates who best fit the student’s personality and learning style.
