Code No.: 606.12
INSUFFICIENT CLASSROOM SPACE
Insufficient classroom space is determined on a case-by-case basis. In making its determination
whether insufficient classroom space exists, the board may consider several factors, including but not
limited to, the nature of the education program, the grade level, the available licensed employees, the
instructional method, the physical space, student-teacher ratios, equipment and materials, facilities
either being planned or under construction, facilities planned to be closed, financial condition of the
school district and projected to be available, a sharing agreement in force or planned, a bargaining
agreement in force, laws or rules governing special education class size, board-adopted school district
goals and objectives, and other factors considered relevant by the board.
This policy is reviewed by the board annually. It is the responsibility of the superintendent to bring this
policy to the attention of the board each year.
