This report examines school district staffing patterns in Florida. School districts selected for this report were asked to identify actual job duties for all staff who were assigned to an instructional job title for the 1997-98 school year, were not assigned to a specific group of students, or were assigned to the superintendent's office. Staffing data were analyzed by school size (small, medium, and large) and by school type (elementary, middle, and high). Findings show that data in the staff database cannot currently be used for any evaluative purpose. It is recommended that: (1) if staff data are ever to be used for any evaluative purpose, the Department of Education should begin periodically to check and verify that districts' job assignments are recorded in the state's staff database; (2) the components of administration--school-site administrators, non-school-site administrators, and administrators with an instructional responsibility--be recognized; (3) that school staff be differentiated into instructional staff, instructional support staff, and administrative staff with an instructional responsibility; and (4) that the Department of Education provide information about, and evaluate, the different staffing standards districts currently use.
