Avon kids matter

Fewer teachers, more students



  • there are fewer teachers in ACSC now than in 2009, and they are teaching more students?
  • teacher positions that were lost in cost-cutting efforts have NOT been restored?
  • average enrollment in Avon’s schools is up 7% since 2009?

Our message for the legislature — INCREASE AVON’s FUNDING PER STUDENT to the STATE AVERAGE. Re-calibrating the “school funding formula” in this way would bring $4.8 Million to Avon annually. This will help restore class sizes to a more reasonable level — providing a better learning environment for Avon’s kids!
