AUBURN SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Auburn School Board recognizes that class size has an effect upon student learning. As such, the Board will strive to maintain student-teacher ratios of no more than 20:1 for grades K-3 and 25:1 for grades 4-8. 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, the management of classroom space shortages, and alternative grouping classrooms.
