District 201 board split on increasing class sizes at Miller School
WESTMONT — A decision by the Community Unit School District 201 Board of Education to double the size of two classes for the upcoming school year at Miller Elementary School in Westmont has some board members and parents up in arms.
Board members voted 4-3 at their March 19 School Board meeting to eliminate one section of classes for the incoming second- and third-grade classrooms at Miller for the 2013-14 school year, having only one class of 25 studnets for the two grade levels at the school. Each level has two differnet classes, or sections, for the grade levels. The vote was part of an overall discussion on staffing levels for the district for the upcoming school year.
The move was done as part of a plan to help balance class sizes at Miller and Manning Elementary School and to spread teaching and staff resources where they are needed elsewhere in the district, School Board President Marie Charlton said.
