Really, Iím feeling sorry for myself. Angry also. Iím at a charter school. Fifth grade. We have a hard cap of 28 students per year. Someone goofed. I will have 29 students in a small portable with big 5th grade desks. They are hoping someone wonít show up for Meet the Teacher tomorrow. But, willing to bet everyone does. We donít lose students often. They also wonít switch student to another class if someone doesnít show tomorrow. Iím going to suck it up and be a team player. Not the way I was hoping to start my school year. :

I know it won't make you feel better, but our usual is 32-34. I have had 36, and some of our older classes have been in the 40 range.

I'm sorry! I remember the year I had 5 extra students compared to everyone else. There just wasn't enough room for the desks (4/5 grade) in our tiny room! Do the other teachers have much smaller classrooms? Are you the only 5th grade teacher? In any case, I'm sorry it's an unhappy start!

I know the more kids, the less space, and more potential problems.
Since it seems to be so close to the norm, I'd probably force myself to "suck it up" too! Maybe 5 of them will be rocket scientists, 25 will be independent workers, and maybe cows will fly. ( Sorry! I couldn't keep positive.) I was trying!

I have been the one to go over the cap once-but they had to pay me extra. Thats why we have contacts. If the cap isnt in your contract with a remedy then its really only a suggestion. I dont know if ou charter has collective bargaining to negotiate teaching conditions for you, if so I'd bring up it up to the negotiating team.
