Class Size Biggest Concern in New Rochelle


A survey released Monday by the New Rochelle School District, which found that preserving class size is the community’s No. 1 school-related priority, reflects concerns of parents throughout lower Westchester.

The survey, part of the district’s 2012-13 budget-setting process, found about 57% of respondents believe keeping class size in check is a critical component of maintaining school quality. About 56% of them believe preserving AP and honors classes is essential; about 47% said having up-to-date technology is a top priority.

Full results are available on the district’s website. New Rochelle residents can take the survey online until Friday.

Class size will surely be an issue in the Mamaroneck School District’s budget-setting process as well. Superintendent Dr. Robert Shaps is scheduled to present his 2012-13 budget proposal on March 20.
