Two weeks after that could have paved the way for more students per classroom, the now plans to indefinitely postpone any public hearings on the idea.
After learning that the state Board of Education won't consider requests to exceed maximum classroom sizes until September, CUSD announced on its website that the district would spend more time "to determine if there’s a need to increase class size and to explore ways to avoid such an increase."
So, instead of at CUSD's upcoming Board of Trustee meeting, officials will wait. If the district later decides bigger class sizes are needed to cut spending, trustees will hold a public hearing.
"The state board will retroactively approve class size waivers after actual increases have been implemented," so there is no need to for CUSD to immediately request higher student-to-teacher ratios, the district said.
