Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
The Elementary Staffing Study was conducted to develop a formula for determining the allocation of personnel positions and services for individual elementary school campuses in the Austin Independent School District. The 1981-82 study was meant to identify factors to be considered in personnel assignment, to "weight" each factor, and to use the factors and weights in developing the allocation formula. Items to be accounted for include enrollment, program multiplicity, achievement levels, and socioeconomic status. The appendixes include a literature review of the Educational Resource Information Center (ERIC) database regarding staffing formula development and use, a school district staffing survey, and an interview with the Director of Staff Personnel. Each source was used to answer one or more evaluation questions, decision questions, and/or information need requirements. Study data and results are presented with the purpose and procedures for using each information source. (CM)
