Manchester teachers' work day to end before students board buses for home
Superintendent Debra Livingston told the school board Monday that she was hopeful that she and the principals could work out a plan to use paraprofessionals, which could require additional funding.
District administrators are estimating that 11 high school classes will have more than 30 students, while nearly 100 middle school classes will exceed the state standard.
The preliminary numbers were presented to the Board of School Committee Monday, as administrators busily prepare for the first day of school, Wednesday, Sept. 4.
"I would ask this board to view this with some caution. There will be shifts in the numbers. We may see some classes drop and others rise ... At this point we don't know how many students have moved and not let us know. It is going to take a week or two for this to settle out."
In the high schools, Memorial has six classes over the limit and Central has five. West has none.
Mayor Ted Gatsas asked Livingston what kind of additional staffing she would need to bring the class sizes down. She replied that she would present a preliminary report during the first week of school.
