Do staffing allocations take into account the number of levels of differentiation in the classroom for math and reading?

Question#: 35


Staffing allocations are based on enrollment projections and are adjusted based on actual enrollment. Class sizes in mathematics and English tend to be lower than average, due to school priorities in scheduling. Classroom instruction involves regularly assessing the needs of students and providing the appropriate instruction. Staff expects that changes in instruction, based on ongoing assessments, occur on a daily or weekly basis, depending on the needs of the students. In the case of students who receive special education and English Speakers of Other Languages support, additional teacher and/or paraeducator staffing allocations are provided for smaller group instruction.
