  • Management and instructional training initiatives

  • School board policies and procedures

  • Administrative and instructional technology applications

  • Facilities construction and maintenance

  • Student transportation operations

  • Food service management

  • Community outreach and public relations

  • Does your administrative organization need:

  • Assessment and description of how the current administrative staff performs assigned duties

  • Assessment and description of the interrelationships between administrative staff functions, identification of overlapping and/or closely related functions, and staff redundancies

  • Analysis of communication and information pathways within the school system and between the school system and community constituents

  • Analysis of the school system's decision-making process

  • Recommendations regarding administrative staffing in the school system, including but not limited to the areas of:
    --Hiring, training, and retention of administrators.
    --Administrative function compared with administrative credentials.
    --Delegation of duties.
    --Implementation of the strategic plan.
    --Technology to improve time and cost effectiveness.

    Does your compensation system need:

  • Internal equity and consistency between and among the various salary schedules, including supplementary schedules

  • External comparability relative to similar positions in other public organizations of similar size

  • Straightforward administration and ongoing maintenance of the salary system, in terms of:

  • --Initial placement of new hires on the salary schedule
    --Advancement across the steps on the salary schedule (the most contemporary approach being some form of performance-based increases)

  • Considerations related to factors such as continued education, longevity, and additional responsibilities that may be added to positions

  • Adjustments to the salary schedules to reflect changes in prevailing economic conditions

  • Consideration of the realities of budgetary constraints as recommendations are developed and evaluated

  • Implementing the resulting recommendations, and transitioning to the new system
