04-26-2016 Special School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #21


Title
Personnel Allocations 2016-2017

Discussion

The staffing plan is a guide to provide for an equitable distribution of manpower resources. The staffing plan provides advanced information for planning in relation to staff levels, assignments, program planning, reappointment recommendations, and budget development.

The staffing plan is designed to contain a level of flexibility which will allow for district-level responsiveness to schools having unique problems. The superintendent may make adjustments based upon an evaluation of all allocations and financial resources. 

The basis for this allocation process is the projected membership for the 2016-2017 school year and strategic planning discussions around utilizing multiple factors to identify school staffing needs, including programs, demographics, and size.

Minor changes include:

  1. All Media Assistants moved from 0.688 allocation (8.00 hrs.) to 1.00 allocation (5.50 hrs.). (Reflects current staffing model more efficiently.) (page 6)
  2. A reduction in reserved units for 2015-2016 recurring salary increases. (page 12)
  3. Definition added for Teacher on Assignment to address schools with higher rates of free and reduced lunch (page 14). These TOA allocations represent an introduction to a differentiated allocation resources plan that will be fully developed in the Strategic Plan. 

A full review of the staffing plan formula/process is anticipated during the 2016-17 school year as one part of the strategic plan; final recommendations would be intended for implementation in 2017-18.  However, the full review during this phase of the strategic plan will not preclude school-based staffing considerations being brought to the Board for earlier implementation if the need is determined and resources are available.
