Class size is a big deal, in NY a new piece of legislation was signed to bring down student count per class from 34 to 25 over the next few years. How big are your CTE classes? In NYC, they’re typically about 28 students.

Our classes are typically capped at 15, due to safety concerns. I can't imagine trying to keep track of 35 students with power tools

In Oklahoma, they are capped at 25. This year my classes are pretty even and I have under 20 in my largest class.

In my CTE area it is 18 students per teacher. Most of our programs have at least 2 instructors.

All of my classes are CTE . My largest is 31, smallest is 25.

My CTE has a 24 student standard. When I started, I could handle 30 with my space with A LOT of space for lab work. When the school was remodeled and I was relocated, I barely have seating 30. My primary lab was taken away. Now, to do any lab/hands-on, I have to move all the tables and stack the chairs.

Help! I just don’t understand the logic. I was making 25% less than the average at my title in my market on the low-end of the pay scale.

I got a salary adjustment, but of course I’m still 10% underpaid. I asked if I am good for a merit as a high performer this summer — they said no, since I got a salary adjustment.

Is it just me or is that a load of crap? A salary adjustment = to make right on marketplace salary norms. A merit = good job, you’re kicking ass.

Can anyone make me feel better?

Kind of a weird question, but if you have status at hotels is there any way you could finagle either free or discounted multi-day parking for hotels near an airport? Don't want to have to rely on ride sharing from my home if there is a stronger likelihood of rides near a hotel airport parking space. I am speculating that it still turns out cheaper than hotel parking. This is not for work so I wouldn't be able to expense it.

How do you assess the quality of your program? Do you use the ACTE framework?

Our department is having a difficult time building our programs. Admin takes us for granted and doesn’t include us in any of the planning. I have a few ideas that I hope will help, but could use some advice on more ways to recruit students to our courses. The courses are relevant and engaging, but we have a trouble getting noticed on our large campus. What ways or methods do you use to draw students into your CTE programs?
