STAFFING NEW PROGRAMS, A RESEARCH STUDY.
KRANTZ, LAVERN L.
ANALYSIS OF DATA FROM 146 SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY SHOWS ACQUISITION OF QUALIFIED STAFF PERSONNEL TO BE A MAJOR DIFFICULTY IN OPERATING NEW SCHOOL PROGRAMS. THE EIGHT MOST DIFFICULT PROGRAMS TO STAFF WERE PRESCHOOL, REMEDIAL READING, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LIBRARIANS, SOCIAL WORKERS, TEACHERS FOR EMOTIONALLY DISTURBED CHILDREN, PSYCHOLOGISTS, SPEECH THERAPISTS, AND PSYCHIATRISTS. DIVERTING PERSONNEL TO NEW PROGRAMS WEAKENS THE REGULAR PROGRAMS. OTHER DIFFICULTIES INCLUDE INSUFFICIENT NOTICE TO PLAN AN ADEQUATE STAFF RECRUITMENT PROGRAM, INADEQUATE JOB DESCRIPTIONS, DETERMINATION OF WAGE RATES, AND LACK OF JOB SECURITY. IN ALL FIVE GEOGRAPHICAL REGIONS, MORE PROGRAMS WERE FUNDED BY PL 89-10, THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT OF 1965, THAN BY OTHER FEDERAL, LOCAL, OR FOUNDATION FUNDS. COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEMS ENCOUNTERED MORE DIFFICULTY THAN CITY OR LOCAL SYSTEMS IN TEACHER RECRUITMENT FOR NEW PROGRAMS. LARGE SCHOOL DISTRICTS REPORTED THE GREATEST DIFFICULTY IN RECRUITING PERSONNEL FOR REMEDIAL, SPEECH IMPROVEMENT, PRESCHOOL, AND VOCATIONAL CLASSES AND FOR PSYCHIATRIC AND EXPANDED HEALTH SERVICES. SMALLER DISTRICTS EXPERIENCED THE GREATEST DIFFICULTY RECRUITING COUNSELING PERSONNEL. ESTABLISHING A SEPARATE SET OF PERSONNEL POLICIES FOR NON-CERTIFICATED STAFF, COORDINATING SALARY SCHEDULES, AND IMPROVING RECRUITING TECHNIQUES ARE RECOMMENDED.
