House – We were there –

Flossmoor School District 161 is looking to limit classroom sizes during its summer academy to encourage student engagement.  

School board members and district administrators discussed plans for the summer session at a special meeting May 7, which was held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Classes will be limited to eight to 10 students during the program and will be held remotely.  

“That will allow our teachers to focus on small groups and individual instruction to meet the students' needs,” Superintendent Dana Smith said of the move.
