How do changes in the middle school staffing model create cost savings?

Posted by:

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.
