Staffing Reviews

Benchmarking data and local needs assessment

Benchmarking data alone does not provide answers to a district’s staffing needs. A TASB staffing review will examine the district’s current staffing practices within the context of specific district needs and priorities. Staffing consultants will collect data from principals and department supervisors, examine class loads and schedules, compare staffing to peer district and state data, and provide a detailed roadmap of recommendations to achieve optimal staffing efficiency and effectiveness. A review may be complete or limited based on a district’s request.

The scope of a staffing review will examine the following:

  • Instructional and administrative support staff
  • Teachers
  • Educational aides
  • Clerical support staff
  • Health service staff
  • Library service staff
  • Athletic staff
  • Special education staff
  • Operations and facility staff
