In essence, administrator counts are being determined by units of pupils, as opposed to the number of personnel under their span of responsibility.
State Rep. Earl Jaques and Senator David Sokola wanted an independent analysis concerning Delaware administrators. Using funds from the Delaware Office of Management and Budget to pay for it, the University of Delaware conducted a study to show just how many administrators Delaware has, and more importantly, what role they play in the grand scheme of things. There is a plethora of material in the final report which was completed on January 10th. It probably would have been a good idea to have this report completed while the District Consolidation Task Force was actually meeting but I digress…
For the district that has 89 fricking secretaries all I can say is “Are you fricking serious?”
Charter schools were NOT included in this study because of the amendment that was placed on Senate Concurrent Resolution #39 which removed charter schools from the task force’s mission to examine district consolidation. Which I think was a huge mistake not to include them in a study like this.
