KPBSD maintains class sizes
Compared to the other major school districts in Alaska, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District has a low pupil/teacher ratio (PTR), according to the 2017-2018 school year class size report, but the ratio doesn’t show the whole picture district, officials said.
During a work session on Monday, the school board analyzed this year’s report, which details the class size and configurations across the district’s 44 schools based off of attendance on Oct. 2, the first day of the On-Line Alaska School Information System (OASIS) Count, which is used to determine student-based revenue from the state.
In one analysis, the report breaks the numbers down by school type with an average PTR, which is the total school enrollment divided by the full-time employees in the building, of 19.4 at large high schools, 19.1 at middle schools, 23 at elementary schools and 16.4 at small schools across the district, such as Cooper Landing and Ninilchik.
