Class Building for 2019-20

We are now in the process of building our 2019-20 classes at ROMS!   Primarily classes are built by the current classroom teacher in conjunction with our Learning Support team.    The deadline for parent input into class building was April 30 and, as we have now begun the process of placing students into classes, we can no longer accept class placement requests.  Students and parents will find out whose class they are in on the first day of school - Sept 3, 2019.   Thank you for your support! As you can imagine, placing over 600 students into classes is a complex task which we take very seriously as we know that creating balanced, diverse classes plays a key role in student success.
