Pasco schools getting closer on class size



After two days of counting, the Pasco County schools are getting close to full compliance with the 2002 class size amendment, district officials tell the Gradebook.

As of noon today, 17 Pasco elementary schools had yet to get their classes down to the required levels of 18 kids in grades K-3 and 22 in grades 4-5. They're all in the midst of adjusting their classes through a variety of means, and all but five are expected to meet the standard by Wednesday with a goal of getting those final five in line by Friday.

The district's middle and high schools have already attained their class size goals, district spokeswoman Summer Romagnoli said.
