For FY 2015, which high schools will receive the focus teacher positions to help lower class size?

Question#: 23

BUDGET PAGE REFERENCE: Chapter 1-18

ANSWER:

The 15 focus teacher positions added in the FY 2015 Superintendent’s Operating Budgeted will be combined with the existing focus teacher positions that are allocated to the Down County Consortium and other highly impacted schools.  The positions are allocated based on FARMs and enrollment to provide staffing to lower class sizes in English and Mathematics.  The formula will be weighted so that schools with larger enrollments and/or higher FARMS rates will receive more staffing.  While final formulas will be confirmed in March when staffing allocations are shared with schools, initial staffing simulations result in the following high schools receiving positions.
