Kindergarten class sizes are getting larger at Williamsburg Elementary and the board will consider options to solve the problem at a special meeting tonight at 7 p.m.
A special meeting of the Board of Education is tonight at 7 p.m. at Coultrap, 1113 Peyton St. to address issues of kindergarten class sizes at Williamsburg Elementary School and possible bussing to other schools. Parents received a letter dated June 26 from District 304 that enrollment numbers are at 25 and 26 students for kindergarten class sections. The board will consider whether to bus some of those students to either Western Avenue Elementary School or Heartland Elementary School for the 2012-2013 school year. Other considerations the board will discuss to solve the overcrowding problem are to add an instructional aide at Williamsburg, reassign students to Western or Heartland, or add an additional class section to Williamsburg.
