"Unitized Structure and Differentiated Staffing in the Elementary School." DSP Progress Report No. 1: Structure and Staffing.
Arends, Richard I.; Essig, Don M.
This report is the first in a series describing the background, theory, and progress of the Differentiated Staffing Project in the Eugene, Oregon, School District. This particular report reviews the history of the project and outlines the organizational structure that has emerged and developed in the experimental elementary schools. A number of questions both practical and theoretical pertaining to the unitized elementary school and differentiated staffing are discussed. The report also includes the rationale for further study of organizational innovations and pinpoints some of the implications for patrons, students, and educators in Eugene School District 4J, should it be decided to continue experimentation and implementation of this organizational structure and staffing pattern.
