Welcome back to class.

How packed are your classes? L.A. Unified and United Teachers Los Angeles are implementing new maximum class size regulations and efforts to solve overcrowding. For the 2015-16 school year the number of students in grades 9-11 should not exceed 37 for magnet schools and those designated as predominantly Latino, black and Asian. For the remaining schools that number should not exceed 43. In the upper grades maximum class size is 46 students. Tell us your experiences with class size as the school year gears up, and any measures your school is taking to make sure it falls within these limits. Students, teachers and parents: Please share information about your class sizes with us. We may follow up with you for more information. Thank you!
