Yesterday, the Ministry made the following announcement ” Ontario Reducing Class Sizes, Boosting Special Education New Labour Agreements Ensure Stability for Students and Families

From the announcement:  “Ontario is also investing in smaller class sizes for students in full-day kindergarten (FDK) and Grades 4-8. FDK classes, which are supported by a teacher and an early childhood educator, will now be capped at 30 students next school year, falling to 29 students in 2018-19, and average no more than 26 students per class within each school board. Support will also be provided to ensure that for students in grades 4-8, all school boards have average class sizes of 24.5 or fewer students.

Additionally, the province is supporting hiring approximately 875 teachers and 1,600 education workers to support students with special education needs and other students at risk.”
