Summary

This exercise simulates the planning of a differentiated staffing prospectus for a high school. The objectives are 1) to develop a program of differentiated staffing based on educational needs; 2) to identify critical organizational variables; 3) to experience the difficulties of group decision making; and 4) to develop a training strategy. The exercise involves five 2-hour sessions, with 1-hour analysis session. The roles involved are associate superintendent, assistant superintendent (budget and personnel), principal, vice principal, counselor, English department head, math department head, teacher, parent, and student. Each member of the team is expected to contribute to the development of the final prospectus during the five planning sessions. The associate superintendent is chairman of the group and ultimately responsible for the quality of the product. The material required for the simulation is included in the document: 1) history of the Columbia area; 2) description of East High School; 3) memo from the superintendent outlining the program; 4) role descriptions; 5) outline of study on differentiated staffing; and 6) resource articles. (SP 004 892, 893, and 894 are related documents.) (MBM)
