606.06 Insufficient Classroom Space

Insufficient classroom space exists when conditions adversely affect the implementation of the educational philosophy, goals/objectives, and programs of the District. The Board of Education shall determine insufficient classroom space on a case-by-case basis. In making this determination, the Board shall use criteria including, but not be limited to: available personnel, grade level, educational program, instructional method, physical space, equipment and materials available, finances available, facilities being planned or currently under construction, sharing agreements in force, bargaining agreements in force, and District goals and objectives.

When possible, the District will aim to reserve spaces to allow for additional resident students. Open enrollment students will receive consideration directed by the policy on open enrollment, transfers and student assignments. Building assignments for open enrollment students will be completed in July preceding the school year in which they will open enroll into the District. Open enrolled students may be reassigned attendance centers on a yearly basis based on available space. The Board shall not hire additional staff or add space in order to accommodate open enrolled students. Teacher/student ratios shall be maintained in alignment with policy and law.
