Approval of Addition of Teacher at WPS

Enrollment in our primary school is up substantially from projections. As a result our current second grade class sizes are each at 27 or more students. The WEA Collective Bargaining agreement identifies the maximum class size for grade 2 at 25. We will, on Monday 9/13 begin a new class of second grade and changed the 2/3 combination to a straight third grade. This will bring down class below the "maximum"; providing for class sizes of 23 and 24 students in grades two and three.
