Florida Flexible Staff Organization Feasibility Study. Interim Report.
Crenshaw, Joseph W.; And Others
The rationale and master plan have been developed, in accordance with legislative mandate, for the planning and implementation of a Flexible Staff Organization (FSO) feasibility study involving the operation of model FSO projects in selected Florida elementary and secondary schools. Objectives will be to explore patterns of staff utilization involving differentiated levels of instructional responsibility and compensation, individualized instruction, time flexibility, instructional support systems, personnel involvement in decisionmaking, and flexible use of physical facilities. The state legislature would provide primary funding for the operation of at least five pilot centers by local school systems, and the State Department of Education would set up an organizational network to coordinate model programs and would be responsible for the state-level operational components: research and evaluation, information dissemination, educational training, and operation and support. The proposed minimum time table outlines a 4-year schedule including Program and Functional Analysis Phase, Development and Staging Phase, Implementation of Pilot Models, Model Modification Phase, and Model Evaluation Phase. (Included in this progress report are the financial plan and budget, proposed funding legislation, organization and process flow-charts, and a 62-item bibliography on differentiated staffing.) (JS)
