A Differentiated Staffing Model and Statement of Philosophy for Spacially Open Elementary and Junior High Schools.
Rosemount Independent School District 196, Minn.
The philosophy and differentiated staffing model governing the instructional program within three spacially open schools in School District 196 (Minnesota) are discussed. Spacially open schools are committed to achievement of curricular goals in the standard curriculum content areas including reading, language arts, mathematics, natural science, and social science. Each school is committed to an instructional environment that is intended to provide more pleasant, satisfying, humanized experiences for all youngsters during instruction. All schools intend that the instruction shall be flexible and attractive to individual pupils. The differentiated staffing model in the three schools is intuitive in design and implementation. The model in each school is essentially a five position model involving positions of team leader, team member, teacher intern, instructional aide, and unpaid volunteers. Within that model are the following similarities: each school has a designated teacher team leader role; the team leaders meet regularly with the principal; all teachers functioning in the team leader role have regularly scheduled daily interface with pupils; team leaders in each school are involved with interviewing and recruitment of staff members; each school has teams organized according to pods; and each open school has a stated commitment to attain cognitive goals of curriculum content and to upgrading pupil self-perception. The rationale and differentiation within each school is provided. (DB)
