Provide 3 Fourth Grade Classes for the 2018-2019 School Year
We, the parents of Oaks Hills Elementary’s third grade students are petitioning the Oak Hills Elementary Administration and Davis School District to provide 3, fourth grade classes for the 2018-2019 school year.
Currently there are 61 third grade students at Oak Hills Elementary divided up into 3 separate classes. If, for next year (2018-2019), there are only 2 classes and the numbers stay the same, the classes will include 30, and 31 students. This large number of students combined with the fact that there are an unusually high number of students on IEP and 504 plans requiring special accommodations would result in an unreasonably difficult classroom situation.
Oak Hills Elementary has already tried using just two classes when these students were in the first grade. This created an extremely challenging environment for the students, parents, and teachers. Since increasing to three classes in second and third grade, the students have thrived, academic scores have increased and behavior issues have decreased. Please do not undo the progress that we have made. We need to support our students by keeping 3 classes for our upcoming fourth graders.
If you think that the Oak Hills Elementary fourth grade should have 3 classes in 2018-2019, please click to sign our petition.
