Looking within to Improve Office Organization
Malinowski, Matthew J.
School Business Affairs, v75 n10 p12, 14 Nov 2009
When tough economic times set in, school business administrators heighten their normal zeal in finding ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency. The author's school district recently underwent a yearlong internal self-analysis to examine and determine the proper staffing levels for the administrative functions within the school district's central office. The district approached the project with a detailed internal examination of all job functions, work processes, and the ebb and flow of peak workload levels. The process included input from administrators, support staff, and building-level personnel regarding appropriate workload distribution and staffing levels. This article describes the process which serves as a useful "do-it-yourself" model for school business officials seeking to thoroughly examine their district's school business operation from the ground up.
