38 Kindergarteners in a Class?!!!

It has been brought to my attention that the Beaumont Unified School District is putting as many as 38 Kindergarteners in one class. There are no class size restrictions in the district’s contract with the teachers and the district appears to be abusing this fact. The board voted on 33 to 1 student to teacher ratio but I don’t think anyone believed the district would put more than 33 kids in a single class, definitely not 38. Apparently there has been some talk about reducing the ratios after September 4th but unless parents hold the district to the 33 to 1 number, our kid’s educational opportunities will suffer more than they already are.

Please attend tomorrow night’s board meeting and make sure our concerns are heard. The district is once again lacking the leadership and direction an active parent community should provide.

The board meeting will be held at:

7:00 P.M.  in the Governing Board Room at  500 Grace Avenue, Beaumont, CA 92223
