Contracts for Excellence

Class Size Reduction 2013-14

As stipulated by the Contracts for Excellence legislation, the New York City Department of Education submitted a Five Year Class Size Reduction Plan to the New York State Education Department that was approved on November 19, 2007. The plan is a comprehensive strategy to reduce class sizes across the system in alignment with the basic principles of leadership, empowerment and performance accountability that are the foundation of the Children First reforms. Contracts for Excellence funding is only one piece of the plan. Beyond resource allocation, the Five Year Plan includes a variety of multi-year strategies such as system-wide guidance and targeted coaching, policy adjustments, new school construction, collaborative team teaching and class size data tracking and accountability.

On July 1, 2013 SED Approved NYCDOE's amended Class Size Reduction plan which focuses on a cross section of schools that have predominantly large class sizes and low student performance.

NYCDOE identified 75 schools with:
1. High average class size in the previous school year (average of 26 students per class or higher)
2. Low student performance (NYCDOE Progress Report grade of C, D, or F as well as struggling schools)
3. and a building utilization rate of less than 100%.
