As happens more and more often this time of year, one school has been informed that class sizes may increase. Over at Chatsworth, there is a planned reduction in the number of fourth grade classes for the 2014-2015 school year.
“As a result, our 4th grade classes will have 25/26 students per class instead of the 21/22 students per class in our current 3rd grade,” says one email being distributed by parents.
Class size usually fluctuates over the summer, and the real numbers won’t be known until Fall.
In other news: Karen Ruzzo was named as Assistant Principal at Central School and Emily Macias-Capellan as Assistant Principal at Chatsworth Ave. School. They will assume the AP positions effective July 1st, when the current APs (Joanne Hindley and Katie Andersen) become Principals at the two respective schools.
Ruzzo comes to Mamaroneck with 20 years of experience working in education as a teacher, staff developer and administrator across several districts, including her most recent tenure as AP for the Chappaqua Central Schools.
