School Organization

Posted September 7, 2022

Please be aware that our school organization is still tentative. Should the number of students registered at the school change significantly, a re-organization of classes may be required.  The École F. A. Hamilton staff has built class lists based on our school’s tentative organization. Changes may be necessary in order for our Board to remain compliant with Ministry parameters (see below). Any changes would be implemented by Monday, September 19th. Principals do not have the option of changing the school organization that is set by the District Staffing Committee of the Board. If changes affect your child(ren), you will be informed by letter by the school.  Ministry of Education Parameters include:

  • Full Day Kindergarten Class Size Average for the Board is 26 students
  • 90% of Full Day Kindergarten classes with 29 or fewer students
  • 10% of Full Day Kindergarten classes with up to 32 students, under certain circumstances
  • 90% of the Board’s primary classes with 20 or fewer students
  • 10% of the Board’s primary classes up to a maximum of 23 students
  • Grade 3/4 classes have a cap of 23 students
  •  Junior/Intermediate Class Size Average for the Board is 24.5 students
