ABILENE, Texas -

Monday night, the Wylie School Board met and voted unanimously to approve requesting a class size waiver from the Texas Education Agency.

Superintendent Joey Light says this is the second year WISD has applied for the waiver that will allow the district to exceed the 22-1 student/teacher ratio in the fourth grade. Light says they have 12 classes of fourth graders who will likely have a 23 - 1 and 24-1 student/teacher ratio.
