Associated Educational Consultants, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA.; Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Vocational Education.
This report discusses a study to examine staffing patterns of postsecondary vocational-technical schools in Georgia to analyze noninstructional staffing needs, existing staff utilization, and appropriate allocations of staff resources. Chapter 1 is an introduction; chapter 2 describes the methodology, which involved review of literature and other materials, development and field testing of function/task survey instruments, data collection at 29 postsecondary schools, data analysis and review, and preparation of final products. Chapters 3-6 present discussions of and tabular data from the survey of the four groups of personnel interviewed, which were designed to analyze functions and tasks included in the various positions as well as time spent performing each of these functions and tasks. The four groups are (1) administrators and supervisory personnel, (2) secretarial/clerical/accounting personnel, (3) custodial/maintenance/security personnel, and (4) teacher aides and other noninstructional service personnel. Chapter 7 reports data from teacher surveys indicating how noninstructional staff could provide additional help in facilitating the teacher's job. Conclusions and recommendations are found in chapter 8. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-half of the report, include the survey instruments and data analyses in table form. (YLB)
