The New Milford Board of Education has decided to add another 2nd grade class at Northville Elementary School, to lower class sizes.  The Newstimes reports that the maximum salary for the teacher is $60,000 and the other teachers will work with the students on the transition. There are 6 second grade classes at Northville, with about half a dozen more students each than at New Milford's other elementary school.  While there was some hesitation among Board of Ed members and parents, they say the post-start hire will help students.
