A Handbook of the Temple City Differentiated Staffing Project. An Up-to-Date Revision of Project Procedures and Policies.
English, Fenwick W.
This document provides a detailed model for the development of a differentiated staffing program, which can continue to be modified. The historical development of the Temple City model is outlined. The organization of the project is set out in detail, beginning with the establishment of a steering committee in December 1966, followed by a restructuring of the District Organization in 1970. A unique concept is the school academic senate, which is the policy-making body within the school directly responsible to the superintendent, and which is neither elected nor appointed but is a selected group of teachers fulfilling an aspect of their differentiated responsibilities. The district senate was officially formed in 1969-70, with voting membership limited to six school principals and six vice chairmen selected from within the school senates. The instruction council is responsible for curriculum development and is composed of master teachers in the various disciplines, the directors of education, and the superintendent. The roles and responsibilities of the various staff members are described in detail and include the associate teacher, the senior teacher, the master teacher, and the paraprofessional. The concept of promotion in a differentiated staffing program is examined, as well as the selection and evaluation of personnel. (MBM)
