    School capacity reflects the number of students that will fit into the school based on the number of teaching spaces (for example, kindergarten rooms, primary grade rooms, intermediate grade rooms, special education rooms, PE teaching spaces, music rooms, secondary general classrooms, art rooms, etc.) and the class sizes in the Weighted Staffing Standards (WSS) model.

    To calculate school capacity at elementary level, we multiply the number of teaching spaces by type by the class size in the WSS model. At middle school and high school levels, the resulting sum is multiplied by 83 percent to reflect the planning period for each teacher in a six period instructional day.

    Operational capacity includes the capacity in the permanent buildings and in the portables currently on the sites.
