The school board for Spokane Public Schools decided Tuesday night not to increase elementary class sizes and to recall a number of teachers who were facing layoffs.
During its work session, the district determined it would keep class sizes at current levels. Earlier, a proposal to increase class sizes met with sharp criticism from parents. The district had been considering increasing class sizes by three students in grades K-12 in a move that could potentially save up to $5 Million.
The district is still discussing increasing class sizes at the middle and high school levels.
