Administrative Regulation 603.01A
Elementary Class Size
The size of each class shall depend upon the type of instruction needed to assist each student in the development of academic and occupational skills. Effective staff utilization shall be considered in organizing and scheduling classroom instruction.
The Executive Directors with the approval of the Superintendent of Schools shall determine the class size for each school unit.
Where elementary class sizes exceed recommended enrollment additional sections may be created or additional classrooms support may be provided. Also, students may need to be “balanced enrolled” to schools where room is available for additional students.
