CANDIA SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Candia School Board recognizes that class size has an effect upon student learning. The Board establishes a target class size of 15-19 students in grades K-2 and 19-25 for grades 3-8. The Candia School Board reserves the right to deviate from these targeted class sizes as individual situations arise. It therefore directs the Superintendent to work with the Principal in establishing a reasonable and equitable class enrollment for each teacher.
In determining the size of various classes, the Administration will consider funding limitations, the availability of a qualified teacher pool, and the management of classroom space shortages.
