Public School Board Braces For Larger Classes

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Larger class sizes in Lethbridge's biggest school district won't have a negative impact on students, according to the superintendent. Despite funding cuts that led to roughly 60 fewer teaching and support staff and bigger class sizes, District 51 Superintendent Barry Litun is optimistic for the upcoming school year.

"We've tried to maintain the resources in the schools as best we can and I know at the district level and at the school level we'll be using some of our minimal residual reserves as necessary to try and alleviate any hot spots as they develop," said Litun. He anticipates there will be one or two more students per elementary class, while middle and high schools will vary from course to course.

"Our promise to parents is that their children will be looked after. They will find their schools are safe and caring places, the students are engaged in their learning and that all our staff will care for their kids," said Litun. "That's really what we are committed to do."
