Due to low enrollment for the 2015-2016 year, it has been proposed that the North Kitsap AGATE Program teaching staff should be reduced from three teachers to two. This would leave only two classrooms to serve at least 57 students with a class size of 28 and 29, respectively. We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the impact of the class size on program quality and respectfully request that you reconsider this proposal. Since this is a temporary low enrollment, three teachers will likely be needed the following year and Mrs. Taylor may not be available to teach if she takes another position. As parents, we are deeply vested in this program and request that you take measures to help the program grow, not diminish. Sadly, we cannot rely on Washington state to protect the best interest of our students by keeping class sizes low, so we hope that the North Kitsap School Board and Adminstration will make it a priority.

Thank you for investing in our country's future....our children.
