Myth : The class sizes listed in the certified agreement are just targets – if I have more than that number of students in my class there is nothing I can do about it.
Fact : The class sizes in the certified agreement are listed as targets; however there are conditions that apply if these targets are to be exceeded.
The certified agreement states that if there is a possibility of class sizes above the targets, the class arrangements shall be the subject of a timely consultative process with staff through the local consultative committee (LCC).
Requirements for timely consultation and the operation of LCCs are set out in Part 3 - Dispute Resolution of the Teachers’ Certified Agreement 2012.
Classes in excess of these maximum target sizes should only occur in exceptional circumstances.
