Pupil to Teacher Ratio

A yellow brick school building with a sign over the entrance that reads "Leal School," and sidewalk and pavement in front of the building.The pupil to teacher ratio data includes figures for both elementary and high schools in Champaign County. This indicator includes the following school districts: Champaign Community Unit School District #4, Fisher Community Unit School District #1, Gifford Community Consolidated Grade School District #188, Ludlow Community Consolidated School District #142, Mahomet-Seymour Community Unit School District #3, Rantoul City School District #137, Rantoul Township High School District #193, St. Joseph Community Consolidated School District #169, St. Joseph-Ogden Community High School District #305, Tolono Community Unit School District #7, and Urbana School District #116. How many pupils per teacher there are in a district can reflect a number of other conditions. We included this indicator to provide some information on classroom size and instruction.

The pupil to teacher ratio shifts slightly from year to year in most districts, but the changes are often relatively small. Most districts’ ratios hover between 15:1 and 25:1 for most or all of the measured time period, with a few districts consistently below 15:1. There is no county-wide unifying trend.

This data, along with a variety of other school district data, is available on the Illinois Report Card, an Illinois State Board of Education and Northern Illinois University website.
