Pre-K Class Size Variance Request
New York State Education Department
Pre-K classrooms have a maximum size at twenty children, but can be expanded. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) will grant a class-size variance to allow a 21st child in the classroom if that child is in temporary housing. To get a variance, the Pre-K program should complete this Pre-K Class Size Variance Request and email it to NYSED’s Office of Early Learning at email@example.com. For more information, see NYSED’s 2015 Guidance Memo.
