Annual Class Size Study

This study contains comparative information about metro district class sizes, in a detailed user-friendly format. Each participating district receives a free electronic copy of the report.

Composite Calendar for All Metro Districts

The Composite Calendar lists participating districts' holidays, teacher work days, conferences, as well as state and national educational conferences. This useful information assists educators when planning cooperative and individual school programs.
