Personnel Resource Allocation Strategies in a Time of Fiscal Stress
Hausner, Larry Joseph, III
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
The purpose of this study was to collect and analyze school level data related to the allocation of resources, and to determine how those resources are used to increase student achievement in the Hampton School District. The study was based on an analysis of one school district located in Los Angeles County in Southern California. All of the schools within the district under study received Title I federal funding, with populations that consisted of at least 88% socioeconomically disadvantaged students. In reviewing the level to which the district implemented Odden's (2009) "10 Strategies for Doubling Student Performance," the district was found to be implementing--at least to some degree--all of Odden's (2009) strategies. The district was found to have a strong understanding of the performance problem and challenge. The superintendent and instructional leadership teams at each school created an instructional vision. Each school's vision included setting high expectations and ambitious goals for all students. Although the sample school district in this study did not have access to the level of resources suggested by the Evidence-Based Model (EBM), it was found to be allocating its resources to the best of its ability during times of economic crisis.
