Hello - My name is***** am an Ontario lawyer who is happy to assist you .

I am sorry to hear about your son's situation. Sometimes class allocation is done by looking at the numbers of the classes and balancing the right class size.

Yes, you can request that the school reconsider the class your son has been allocated to especially if you mention to the school that your son is not thriving in this new class and is emotionally not doing well.

Hope this answers your question.

hi Joanne.Thank you very much for the reply. I met the principal and he told me that so the class was redistributed and I do not have a one percent chance of requesting a change of class

You are very welcome.

To clarify - was your son put in another class then ?

Customer
The principal told me that I had no right to change the class for my son

I see - While you do have the right to request the change, the school also has to abide by Board of Education policies for class sizes and other factors in deciding class allocation. This is especially more complicated now due to COVID 19.

Usually, if the principal knows a child is not thriving in the class, the school will consider your request more seriously but it is still early on in the year and that is perhaps why your son was not reallocated to another class. Currently, reallocation may be harder due to COVID.

From my experience, sometimes a child needs a while to adjust to a class and will settle in after a few months because children adapt quite quickly.

Hope this helps

Customer
