With the help of our dedicated principals, I have been closely monitoring class size across the district through the first three days of school. We have identified large class sizes in several areas and will allocate additional funding to address them. This will lower class size in the most needed classrooms across the district. These changes will be:
- An additional 3rd grade class at Echo Shaw
- An additional kindergarten class at Joseph Gale
- An additional 4th grade class at Harvey Clarke
- Additional classroom support for the 4th grade at Cornelius Elementary
I am committed to creating a district that fosters excellent instruction. Lowering class size is one area that will assist us in accomplishing that.
