Edina 2009/2010 3rd Grade Class Size Issue

Concord Elementary will be moving from 6 to 5 sections for the 2009/2010 school year for the 3rd Grade Class. Every year the school struggles to address the class size issue with this particular group of students. The resulting change will result in 4 sections of 26 students and 1 section of 27 students. Based upon discussions with surrounding metro districts on the upcoming school year for 3rd grade classes, Concord's class size will be between 2-4 students higher than surrounding metro districts. There is general concern around the disparity between other districts and the continuing struggle to manage the size of this class. We would like to address this issue immediately for the 2009/2010 school year by adding another section or adding sufficient para support to meet the core educational needs of the students and their parents. Show your support by also calling: Rick Sansted, Principal (952) 848-4300 ricsansted@edina.k12.mn.us Director of Human Resources & Administrative Services Gwen Jackson, Ph.D. 952-848-4946 gwejackson@edina.k12.mn.us Brian Hedberg 4913 Trillium Lane, Edina, MN 55435 (Voicemail) 952-848-3912 x7311 W: 612-466-7370 bhedberg@comcast.net Term expires 12/31/09
