- The principal shall, in general, assign students to classes and to teachers without regard to academic ability. He/she shall not attempt to group children homogeneously.
- Classroom teachers may, with their own classes and within their own classrooms, group for instruction as they so desire.
- Teachers may join with other teachers in inter-class grouping for instruction, team teaching, or the assignment of teachers to subject matter specialties only with prior approval of the principal.
