We have tenaciously fought for class size reductions over the last two decades, and your students deserve a class within the limits.
Please file a class size grievance once the number of children reporting to your class is in excess of the contractual maximum — 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.
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 Grievance Tracking Forms, and upload the appropriate form monthly on the grievance form.
Finally, and this is very important: Please insist that your class size limit be enforced. Don’t sign any settlement form your principal gives you without speaking with someone in the BTU office.
If you have any questions, call or email BTU Vice President Erik 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.
Please read these FAQs before you complete a class size grievance.
