More Good News About Class-Size Relief
As of mid-May, the Joint Class Size Assessment Council has provided a total of 354 class-size positions. Of these, 210 are teacher positions, and the remaining 144 are teacher assistants. These are at more than 190 district schools throughout the city. We have also authorized overtime classes at the high-school level to help alleviate overcrowded classes, and some schools have received extended-day buckets providing additional paid preparation time before or after school for teachers with student overloads.
