Differentiated Staffing: What It Is and How It Can Be Implemented.
Dempsey, Richard A.; Fiorino, A. John
This report presents a picture of differentiated staffing and how it may be implemented into the local school setting. Chapters include a definition and overview, rationale for differentiated staffing, patterns of differentiated staffing, personnel, planning for differentiated staffing, and a planning schedule. The rationale for differentiated staffing stresses enhanced career opportunities and involvement in the decision making process. The fourth chapter on personnel reveals professional and paraprofessional hierarchy as well as promotion and selection procedures. The professional levels include resident intern, instructor associate teacher, staff teacher, senior or directing teacher, and consulting or master teacher; the paraprofessional hierarchy include instructional assistant, aide, student assistant, adjunct teacher and volunteer assistant. The fifth chapter, on planning for differentiated staffing, presents suggestions on pre-planning activities, organization, planning process, implementation, guidelines for implementation, selection of schools, staff-development education, allocation of resources, and cost. A 6-year planning and implementation schedule on differentiated staffing is also presented. A 22-item bibliography and appendixes are included. (MJM)
