Placement Policy/PTA

Placement Policy

Students are placed in classrooms based on a variety of criteria.
Due to the extensive process used to place children, changes in placement will not be honored without observation of the Placement Policy. Following the policy does not guarantee a change in placement.

Placement Policy
No changes in placement will be considered until the student has been in his/her assigned class for a minimum of four weeks. Should a change in placement ultimately be approved, the new placement will be based, in part, on existing class sizes and compositions.

The steps listed must be followed in order when seeking a change in placement.

  1. The parent makes an appointment with the teacher to discuss concerns
  2. The parent makes an appointment through the office to observe in the classroom during instructional time and then observes for a period of thirty minutes or more.
  3. After the observations, the parent makes an appointment with the teacher and administrator to discuss concerns.
  4. If this does not resolve the problem, then- The parent writes a letter to the principal with a copy for the teacher, stating the reason(s) for the requested change in placement. (The teacher has the option of seeking support in an effort to respond to the parent’s concerns)
  5. The parent, teacher, and principal will then meet to discuss the change request and attempt to come to consensus about approving or disapproving the change in placement. If the group is unable to reach consensus, the final decision is made by the principal.

If the change in placement is approved, the new placement will be made considering existing class sizes and compositions.


Your Ventana Ranch Elementary PTA would like to welcome you to join us this year as we endeavor to increase communication and make a positive impact on our school community.

PTA is dedicated to empowering parents to make a difference in the education, health, and safety of our children. We do this through curriculum nights, coordinating with our teachers to help meet their classroom needs, providing healthful snacks during testing, and much more.  


PTA isn’t simply here to provide fun activities or conduct fundraising, although that is part of our job here. It is our goal to be the intermediary between teachers, students, administration, and the community and give voice to the concerns and ideas of each.


Every individual who joins PTA helps not only his or her child but every child. Imagine how strong our community could be if every parent, every community member, and every business leader got involved in PTA! We would love to have YOU join us as a member today!


Attached on this page are pertinent publications that we intend to update periodically as needed to keep you informed. Here you can find our membership form, which you can print, fill out, and turn in with your dues check either at the front office or in an envelope to your child’s teacher.  You will also find our spirit gear order form to help you and your child show your school spirit!
