When establishing a program to reduce class size in one or two courses in grade 9, the Superintendent or designee shall certify that, at each participating school: (Education Code 52084)

1. English courses are included in the program.

2. The second course, if any, is a course in mathematics, science, or social studies which counts towards graduation requirements pursuant to Education Code 51225.3.

3. The average class size in the school for the designated course(s) shall be no more than 20 students per certificated teacher, and there shall be no more than 22 students in any participating class.

Special education students enrolled in special day classes on a full-time basis and students enrolled in necessary small schools that receive funding pursuant to Education Code 42280 shall not be counted in calculating class sizes for purposes of this program.

4. The implementation of class size reduction has not adversely affected existing class size in other courses.

Class size reduction in grades 10, 11, and/or 12 shall be maintained at the same grade levels and in the same courses as in the 1997-98 school year.
