Springfield District 186 is seeking public comment about a proposed rule change that could have a major effect on special education students.
A post on the district’s website says the State Board of Education has proposed removing all class size requirements for students with disabilities.
According to the district, the rule change would mean no limits on class sizes for special ed students… and no limits on the number of special ed students that could be in a single general education classroom.
The district is asking interested parties to send comments to the State Board of Ed.
More details and a link are available at the Springfield Public Schools website, sps186.org.
