Multiage Choice Program

South Washington County Schools offers the option of multiage classrooms at Valley Crossing Elementary School. The Multiage Choice Program is made up of classrooms where students of different ages are intentionally placed in the same classroom to take advantage of the natural diversity created. Instruction focuses on individual progress in both academic and social-emotional areas. Students have the same classroom teacher for two years (Kindergarten and 1st grade, 2nd and 3rd, and 4th and 5th). This strengthens the relationship with students and families and helps teachers to know their students well.

Enrollment in the Multiage Choice Program will be determined based on the number of applications received. A lottery will be held if the number of applications exceeds the space available. Families not selected by the lottery will be placed on a waiting list. Kindergarten students not selected should then plan to attend their boundary school kindergarten enrollment night. Students not accepted initially will be placed on a waitlist and considered for future openings.

Students from across the district may enroll in the Multiage Choice Program. Transportation is provided to resident families who live outside of walking distance from Valley Crossing Elementary.
