Elementary Schools in WCCSD are poised to see our lower grade class sizes increase up to over 30 students per class. Most studies show kids benefit from low class sizes in every possible respect – - they perform better in school, they have less chance of falling behind and needing additional help, and they see more success in the future. Our school board has a chance to keep class sizes low in their upcoming budget. We’re calling on them to stand up for students and education and keep class sizes low!
The school board has committed some funds to class size reduction but we need more, and we need a guarantee. They have the funds, they need to hear from our community about priorities. We want to keep cuts out of the classroom.
We are hoping to get 1000 signatures by next week – can you please forward this to your friends in our district – teachers, neighbors – we would love to see this petition grow even stronger.
Please take a moment to forward this on.
Thanks for supporting education,
