HOOKSETT SCHOOL DISTRICT
CLASS SIZE

The Hooksett School Board recognizes that class size has an effect upon student learning. As such, the Board will strive to maintain student-teacher ratios not to exceed 20:1 in grades K-2
and not to exceed 25:1 for grades 3-8. It therefore directs the Superintendent to work with the Principals in establishing a reasonable and equitable class enrollment for each teacher. In determining the size of various classes, the administration will consider funding limitations, the availability of a qualified teacher pool, and the management of classroom space shortages.
