Extenuating circumstances may produce a situation where teacher class size is larger than allowed by the Agreement. Those violations shall be granted after review by the Professional Governance Council on a case-by-case basis and deviations from this Agreement maximums shall be determined based on the following factors: • Voluntary agreement by the teacher involved. • Adequate and safe facility available: room size, desks, chairs, available working equipment stations especially in those areas where available space, equipment, number of work stations or special nature of the class makes smaller classes mandatory or desirable (i.e., one computer per student). • Reasonable statement of need. • Stipend of $300 per student per semester and $200 each trimester for each limit violation. General education teachers in team taught classes will have all students enrolled in the class (both special education and general education students) counted toward the hourly maximum.
