Jefferson County Public Schools announced that they are planning to increase the maximum number of students per class. They state that this change would allow approximately 280 teachers to be moved around the county to other schools or programs that are in need of support.
Superintendent Donna Hargens states that the proposal isn’t for saving money, but a proposal that allows the money already there to be used towards initiatives that have been identified as priorities, such as putting more teachers in low-performing school.
The budget in which this proposal is located will be available for approval on January 24.
