NCASA Supports Class Size Law Changes
Unveiled By Senate, House Leadership
House and Senate education and chamber leaders unveiled legislation that includes an extended phase-in process and full funding for enhancement teachers to address statewide concerns from public school leaders about the existing class size requirements in Grades K-3. Katherine Joyce, Executive Director of the North Carolina Association of School Administrators (NCASA), stood in support of the legislation at its unveiling to the public and in committee hearings.
“On behalf of the superintendents and other school leaders in our membership, we are pleased that this new legislation provides a reasonable timeline for reducing class sizes in kindergarten through third grade, which is a priority of the General Assembly, while simultaneously ensuring adequate funding and support for continuing vitally important instruction in art, music, physical education and world languages,” Joyce said. “We are especially appreciative that Senate and House leaders were willing to work with us in developing this new legislation to ensure that school districts across the state have a viable solution to concerns they have previously expressed about the existing law on class sizes.”
