Important Information

The Class Size Website calculations are estimates provided for informational purposes only and do not include FDOE staff, student, or course validations. Each school is responsible for the verification of, and update to, their TERMS and External data for each Survey period. Schools must review and correct their FTE Optispool reports as well as the FDOE Class Size Reports posted in the DWH School Reports Folder. FDOE Class Size Reports will be posted to the DWH Reports Folder as released by the State.

Class Size Reduction compliance and penalty is calculated based on October Survey 2 data only. CSR compliance is submitted to the State for review for February Survey 3. It is the District’s expectation that schools will maintain similar compliance during Survey 3, with the exception of newly enrolled students. School Principals must continue to monitoring their class size data via the CSR website and make any necessary corrections immediately to ensure accurate data reporting.
