How do changes in the middle school staffing model create cost savings?
The current staffing model is expensive, not sustainable with current Arizona funding allocations, and not equitable amongst classroom teachers. Approximately, only 20% of classroom teachers have additional PLC planning time within their daily assignment in the current model. Based on the January 8 presentation, proposed savings for a change are approximately $1,170,000. These values may be adjusted in alignment with FY20 student enrollment and staffing allocations.
