Up to 80 New Classrooms Will Reduce Class Sizes
As many as 80 classrooms will be added in the primary grades of the Garden Grove Unified School District before the fall to allow for smaller classes.
The Board of Education recently voted to reconfigure as many as 40 classroom wings, at $15,000 each, at 20 elementary schools to accommodate more classes with fewer students in kindergarten through third grades.
Forty portable classrooms already have been purchased for the third grades districtwide.
Reconfiguring existing rooms to create the remaining 40 rooms will help preserve playgrounds and open space on school campuses. In similar redesigns, clusters of three rooms have been reworked into four smaller classrooms.
