Comparative High School Staffing and Master Schedule Study

The first step in the personnel reduction process is to identify services for reduction, and, accordingly, the number of positions that will be impacted by the reduction in services. For local educational agencies (LEAs) with secondary school sites which operate with a departmentalized classroom structure, the evaluation process includes an examination of the master and bell schedules as well as their impacts on class loads. School Services of California Inc. staff’s analysis can provide insights into student participation in various courses and classes and can help an LEA determine when courses or classes are not being fully utilized by students, and therefore, can be considered for possible elimination and subsequent reductions in staff. This review is crucial prior to making staffing reduction decisions to ensure that the reductions are targeted and result in the least impact to students in grades that are critical for college and career preparedness.
