PARENT OR GUARDIAN OF TWINS OR HIGHER ORDER MULTIPLES MAY  REQUEST  THAT
THE  CHILDREN  BE PLACED IN THE SAME CLASSROOM OR IN SEPARATE CLASSROOMS
IF THE CHILDREN ARE IN THE SAME GRADE LEVEL AT THE  SAME  SCHOOL.    THE
SCHOOL  MAY  RECOMMEND  CLASSROOM  PLACEMENT  TO THE PARENTS AND PROVIDE
PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION ADVICE TO THE PARENTS TO ASSIST  THEM  IN  MAKING
THE BEST DECISION FOR THEIR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION.  A SCHOOL MUST PROVIDE
THE PLACEMENT REQUESTED BY THE CHILDREN'S PARENT OR GUARDIAN, UNLESS THE

SCHOOL PRINCIPAL'S REQUEST ACCORDING TO THIS SECTION.    THE  PARENT  OR
GUARDIAN  MUST  REQUEST  THE  CLASSROOM PLACEMENT NO LATER THAN FOURTEEN
DAYS AFTER THE FIRST DAY OF EACH SCHOOL YEAR OR FOURTEEN DAYS AFTER  THE
FIRST  DAY  OF  ATTENDANCE  OF  THE CHILDREN DURING A SCHOOL YEAR IF THE
CHILDREN ARE ENROLLED IN THE SCHOOL AFTER THE SCHOOL YEAR COMMENCES.
  2. AT THE END OF THE INITIAL GRADING PERIOD, IF THE SCHOOL  PRINCIPAL,
IN  CONSULTATION  WITH THE CHILDREN'S CLASSROOM TEACHER, DETERMINES THAT
THE REQUESTED CLASSROOM PLACEMENT  IS  DISRUPTIVE  TO  THE  SCHOOL,  THE
SCHOOL  PRINCIPAL  MAY REQUEST THAT THE SCHOOL BOARD DETERMINE THE CHIL-
DREN'S CLASSROOM PLACEMENT.
