6225: Secondary Class Size

The District will make reasonable efforts to maintain class size in the middle and high schools it deems appropriate and fiscally responsible for the effective instruction of students.

Whenever 14 or fewer students enroll in a class (course), the class may not be offered unless so mandated by law, the Board of Education, or necessitated by District activity programs. An effort may be made to combine a class consisting of 14 or fewer students with a similar or related class or program either in the same building or in a different grade level or building.

Any course, other than those mandated, may be deleted from the District’s curriculum offerings after a history of three consecutive years where enrollment in the course has 14 or fewer students. Said enrollment figures will be those derived from official class rolls.

A report for the Board of Education will be prepared annually and instructions provided to building administrators regarding those classes (courses) that will be subject to specified enrollment parameters for the upcoming year.
