New class size report issued; D203 board seeks more information

The Naperville District 203 Board of Education gave a first-ever class size report for the 2023-24 school year at its meeting on Monday night. The document comes on the heels of a new policy adopted this summer that set parameters around target class sizes.

According to the report, districtwide average enrollment in elementary grades this fall is 21.8 students, in junior high grades ranging from 22.7 to 24.9 students and in high school grades at 25 students or fewer.

The board has asked for additional information on class sizes, particularly for some of the specialized high school courses. Administrators plan to deliver a separate, but related, enrollment report at the next board meeting on Oct. 16.
