2010-11 Legislative Changes

Bill No. CS/HB 5101 (2010)

1003.03 Maximum Class Size. -

(2) IMPLEMENTATION. -

  • The Department of Education shall annually calculate class size measures … based upon the October student membership survey.
  • Prior to the adoption of the district school budget for 2010-2011, each district school board shall hold public hearings and provide information to parents on the district’s website, and through any other means by which the district provides information to parents and the public, on the district’s strategies to meet … [class size] requirements.

1. Identify for each grade group, the number of classes in which the number of students exceeds the maximum and the total number of students which exceeds the maximum for all classes.

“Section 1003.03, relating to the maximum class size, except that the calculation for compliance pursuant to s. 1003.03 shall be the average at the school level.”

senate joint resolution 2 amendment 8
Senate Joint Resolution 2/Amendment 8
  • The 2010 Florida Legislature passed SJR 2 which will be on the ballot as Amendment 8 for the November 2010 general election.
  • If approved by the voters by a margin greater than 60 percent, the 2002 constitutional provision for reducing the size of classes would be changed.
  • Beginning with the 2010-11 school year, the maximum class size would be the school average number of students who can be assigned to each teacher in the following grade groupings: 18 students grades K-3; 22 students in grades 4-8; and 25 students in grades 9-12.
  • The maximum number of students who may be assigned to a teacher, but not exceeding the school level averages is: 21 students in grades K-3; 27 students in grades 4-8; and 30 students in grades 9-12.

  • Core Courses for Class Size Reduction – Appendix S / DPS.DISTRICT.GQ.F70554.Yyyyy
    • Mathematics, Language Arts/Reading, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Language, English for Speakers of Other Languages, Exceptional Student Education, and courses taught in traditional self-contained elementary school classrooms.
term survey indicator
Term/Survey Indicator
  • Term 3 will always be Y, Term 1 will always be Y in Survey Period 2, and Term 2 will always be Y in Survey Period 3.
  • For the same Classroom/Course/Period/Section, if Term 6 is Y, Term 7 must be N and if Term 8 is Y, Term 9 must be N.
  • For the same Classroom/Course/Period/Section, only one of Terms J, K, L may be Y in Survey Period 2, and only one of Terms M, N, O may be Y in Survey Period 3.
  • For the same Classroom/Course/Period/Section, only one of Terms E, F, G, H, I may be Y in Survey Period 2 or 3.
  • For the same Classroom/Course/Period/Section, only one of Terms B, C, D may be Y in Survey Period 2 or 3
  • For the same Classroom/Course/Period/Section, only one of Terms T, U, V, W, X may be Y in Survey Period 2 or 3
steps in calculation
Steps in Calculation

1) Count the number of students in each class (term/course/period) in each room.

2) Determine the maincourse taught in each class based on the majority of students.

* If the same number of students are in a core and non-core course, then the main course is core.

3) Determine maingrade taught in each class based on the majority of students in that grade in the main course.

* If the same number of students are in two or more grades and in the same room, the highest single grade (not grade group) with the most students is determined to be the main grade. (Confirmed for 0910)

* Example: in the main course, there are

i. two 2nd grade students

ii. two 3rd grade students

iii. three 4th grader students

Main grade = 4th grade

4) Identify the classes in which the main course is a “core” course. (Only these combinations are used in the remaining steps.)

5) Count the number of students in each class.

scheduling special situations multi use classroom or pods
Scheduling Special Situations: Multi-Use Classroom or Pods

Multi-Use Classroom or Pod (Scheduling Method M) = More than one class meets during the same period in a space designated by one FISH number but separated by temporary “walls.”

  • Each teacher who is the primary teacher for each group of students should be coded with Scheduling Method “M”.
  • All of the students in the “pod” will be added together and then divided by the total number of teachers coded “M.”
scheduling special situations team teaching
Scheduling Special Situations: Team-Teaching

Team-teaching =

(i) Co-teaching (Scheduling Method “C”): “two or more teachers assigned to a group of students and each teacher is responsible for all of the students during the entire class period. In order to be considered co-teaching each teacher is responsible for planning, delivering and evaluating instruction for all students in a class or subject for the entire class period.” (HB 7081, 2007)

OR

(i) Inclusion-teaching (Scheduling Method “I”): “two or more teachers are assigned to a group of students but one of the teachers is only responsible for one student or a small group of students in the classroom.” (HB 7081, 2007)

cs team teaching adjustment formula
CS Team-Teaching Adjustment Formula
  • Co-Teaching (“C”): # of “C” students in the class/# of “C” teachers in the class.
  • Inclusion (“I”): # of “I” students in the class/# of non-I teachers in the class + 1.

Note: the product of this adjustment is added to the rest of the students in the class.

* Example: in a class there are 3 “I” students (with 1 “I” teacher) and 17 “S” students (with 1 “S” teacher).

Adjustment steps:

a. 3/2 = 1.5. 1.5 truncated = 1.

b. 1 + 17 = 18.

scheduling guidance inclusion teaching
Scheduling Guidance – Inclusion Teaching
  • I-Teachers may plausibly instruct up to 2 groups of students (course/sections) during a single period.

2. In order for the CS Team-teaching adjustment to be made, all students served by the I-Teacher must be enrolled either:

    • with the I-Teacher only in a unique Course & Section; or

b. with both the I-Teacher and the Non-I Teacher.

Note: if 2b, then

i. the I-Teacher and Non-I Teacher may be teaching the same Course, but they must be teaching different Sections; and

ii. the duplicate I-student will be dropped from the non-I teacher’s course.

scheduling guidance reporting period nn88
Scheduling Guidance: Reporting Period NN88

Report a student in each class that a student attends for any amount of time during each period.

  • Standard meeting time courses to which the student is assigned should be coded as a beginning and ending period, e.g., 0202.

2. Non-standard meeting time courses to which the student is assigned for classes that meet differing periods during the week should be coded with the first two digits as the first period the class meets during the week and 88 for the third and fourth digits, e.g., 0288.

Example, 2: a student meets with a speech therapist once a week but not on a specified day because the speech therapist travels between different schools. Because of the speech therapist’s varying schedule, the speech therapist and student meet during different periods and sometimes even different days of the week.

team teaching reporting
Team-Teaching Reporting

Teaching strategies implemented on or after July 1, 2005, may be implemented subject to the following restrictions:

  • Reasonable limits shall be placed on the number of students in a classroom so that classrooms are not overcrowded.
  • At least one member of the team must have at least 3 years of teaching experience.

Teaching experience length (Teaching Experience format ) is reported for each of the following Experience type codes:

    • F Teaching in Florida public schools
    • S Teaching in Florida nonpublic schools
    • P Teaching in out-of-state public schools
    • N Teaching in out-of-state nonpublic schools

The sum of the values in the codes F, S, P, and N must equal to 3 or greater

3. At least one member of the team must be teaching in-field.

* In-field data is reported on Teacher Course format,

element Certification/Licensure/Qualification Status,

codes A, H, I, M or S.

4. Each teacher must be trained in team-teaching methods within 1 year after assignment.

* Team-teacher training data is reported on Teacher Course format, element Team Teacher Training, codes A-D. (Code Z is for team teachers in non-class size courses)

No core courses taught on Friday:

  • The algorithm only counts classes taught on Friday.
  • Some schools have NO CORE COURSES scheduled on Fridays.
  • If an ENTIRE school has no core courses scheduled on Friday, code the Day of the Week Scheduled, Date Certain “Y.”
