15.5 Class Size

For Board Policy regarding class size recommendations/limitations see:

Board Policy 3450

Concerns regarding class size or class composition may be called to the attention of the building principal, utilizing the Collaborative Problem –Solving Process, if desired. Should that process not resolve the issue, the concerns regarding class size may be forwarded to a committee which shall consist of six (6) members, three (3) appointed by the Superintendent or his/her designee and three (3) by the teachers’ employee group, previously referred to as “bargaining unit.” Specific class size concerns shall be sent to the Superintendent or his/her designee. The committee shall then meet within five (5) days from the receipt of the concerns. If the committee is able to reach a mutually acceptable solution, the Superintendent will implement the solution. The five (5) day limit may be extended by agreement of the parties. Should the committee fail to reach agreement, and should the issue include a violation of the class size limitation set forth in Board policy, the issue may be addressed under the grievance procedure.
