Reporting students with disabilities Students that are in the classroom for any core curricular subjects, Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, should be included in your student: teacher ratios.

Reporting migrant students Schools should plan to be at 18:1 or 30:2 on third Friday. 10 SwD note that this is a change from past policy it used to be 50 percent or more in the classroom.
