The Board discussed the possibility of adding a third section of kindergarten at Altamont Elementary.

Christopher McManus said he was disappointed they were having the discussion at this point in time and stated his concern over moving kids out of their existing classrooms now that school has started.

Gloria Towle-Hilt said the Board owns the problem and is in support of adding the section.

Judy Slack said there are five elementary schools and all the classes are not even. She said the Board needs to look at the overall class sizes.

Catherine Barber said they need to consider increasing the unassigned FTE's in next years budget.
