Click here to file a Class Size Grievance online now.
We have tenaciously fought for class size reductions over the last two decades. Data shows that the lower the class sizes the better when it comes to meeting students’ needs. As soon as class size maxima have been exceeded in your class, file a class size grievance online immediately. You should file a class size grievance once the number of children reporting to your class is in excess of the contractual maxima — it can’t just be the number on your class list. The students must have physically attended school at least once and then not have been officially discharged. Please see the schedule below of permissible class size numbers. If any of your classes is in violation of the allowed Class Size Maxima, speak to your BTU Building Rep., your Building Administrator and immediately file it online. No compensation shall be owed for class size grievances is resolved within fifteen school days of the filing and if you are eligible for compensation, it will be calculated from the date the grievance is filed. In addition to filing your Class Size Grievance, it is important to keep all of your records until your grievance is resolved. To help with this, please print out the Class Size Compensation Forms.
If you have any questions, call or email BTU Vice President Eric Berg. When your class size is resolved, please email it to Denice Dwyer or fax it to her at 617-288-0024. If you have any questions please call Denice at 617-288-2000.
Procrastination does not pay. File your grievance when the maxima is exceeded. A student who has been enrolled and who has not been discharged counts on your class roster.
