Policies and Regulations NEPN Code: IIB

Class Size

Class size will be defined as the number of students under the supervision of a regular classroom teacher, at any one time, for the purpose of instruction.

Regular classes are those instructed by regular classroom teachers and do not include those instructed by counselors or teachers with specialized caseloads. Classes such as art, physical education, music, or other similar purposes may be considered regular classes but do not fall under common policy for class size.

The Sioux Falls School District will strive to maintain the class size that it deems appropriate for effective instruction of students in accordance with financial realities.
