How To Build a Model of Staff Differentiation. A Step by Step Guide in the Development of a Situational Specific Site Model of Differentiated Staffing.
English, Fenwick W.; Zaharis, James
This publication is designed for use with local school district staff members to provide information concerning the development of differentiated staffs on the basis of functional requirements. It is quasi-programed to provide stimuli to search for new alternatives to staff organization. After defining the terms, the authors consider the various kinds of organization and the staffing patterns needed in the client-centered school system. Work specialization and the way in which it relates to instructional improvement are discussed. Another section deals with personal orientation to teaching, ranging from extreme task orientation to extreme people orientation, and a model is proposed which would provide a balance between these extremes. The relationship between commitment and performance is also considered, as well as ways of improving team decision making. The document concludes with two group activities and a brief annotated bibliography. (MBM)
