Eradicating large-sized classes is one reason why parents at Jacksonville Elementary School are asking the Medford School District for one more teacher. Steve Best explains….

At the end of last month, Jacksonville Elementary had a 36-student fourth-grade class, a 35-student fourth-fifth blend class, a 34-student fifth-sixth blend class and a 36-student sixth-grade class.

Parents say all four of these large classes could be balanced out with the addition of just one more full-time teacher.

Several parents made this point at a school board meeting Monday, saying that the large classes are loud and distracting, and make life difficult for students and teachers alike.
