BENEFIT THE STUDENT?

ISSUES FOR BOARD DISCUSSION

  • Eliminate combination classes in all schools or in larger schools.

    Example: This solution would require 29 FTE

    at a cost of $2,500,000 this year .

2. Exceed 24 to 1 (K-3) and 30 to 1 (4-6) in

order to reduce or eliminate combination

classes.

New Grade Span Adjustment parameters

require the district to monitor class sizes

on an individual school basis to avoid

a fiscal penalty.


Issues for board discussion continued1
ISSUES FOR BOARD DISCUSSION (Continued)

  • Beginning in 2015-16, identify 1-2 schools in North Stockton and in Lodi to serve as overflow schools. Staff larger schools with straight grade classes only and overflow students when classes are full.

    This plan will cause larger numbers of students to be overflowed to schools located a significant distance from their neighborhood. A number of 4th grade students will be overflowed due to the difference in class size from primary to intermediate.
