Class sizes are different depending on grade level. It’s also important to understand that averages are for the district, so class sizes may vary from school to school, but should not exceed the maximum number.
|Average #||Maximum #|
|Kindergarten & Grade 1||23||27|
|Grades 2 & 3||24||29|
|Grades 4 – 12||26||32|
Exceptions are made for physical education classes and special experimental classes (limited to one term).
Class sizes were set up to ensure that students receive the best education possible. If you believe that you have an issue with your class size, you may consult Article VI, 6.3 of the Teachers’ Contract and/or your BEA building representative.
