Grades affected by class size increases

Question: Which grades will be impacted by the reduction of teachers? To quote the budget newsletter, "Elementary class sizes in three grades will exceed 27 students per classroom."

Answer: We won't make this decision until the summer. The final decision will be based on enrollment at each grade level, as well as the age population of the students -- for instance, research shows that smaller class sizes are most important for younger students.
