How has this development
impacted our students?
   1. The breadth and depth of specialist
       programming
          Physical Education
          Music
          Resource-based Learning
          French
   2. The scope of student support
       services
          Guidance
          Special Education
          Resource
          Reading Recovery®
   3. Teaching – Learning Process
          Teachers “stretched” across grades
          Teachers “stretched” across subject areas
          Teacher isolation
          Lack of administrative direction and support
   4. Student Diversity
          Children’s social and emotional development
           may be affected by split classes and soon,
           triple-graded classes
Why are we concerned?
   Student Achievement

   Student Improvement

   Literacy – Numeracy standards
    increasing
What should we do?
   Focus on the teaching – learning
    process
   Emphasize structured and explicit
    teaching methods aimed at specific skill
    development in reading, writing and
    mathematics
What is the best way to do it?
   At least 2 teachers per grade
   Single graded classrooms
   15-20 students grade 1-3, 20-25
    students grade 4-6
   Strong student support and specialist
    programs
   Within grade teacher collaboration and
    administrative leadership and support
