Assignment of Central Staff to Schools
Assembly Bill 469 requires that "to the extent that any member of the staff of central services is assigned to provide services at a local school precinct on a temporary or permanent basis, the decision regarding the assignment and any subsequent reassignment of the member of the staff must be made in consultation with the principal of the local school precinct and the school associate superintendent."
Employees from across Central Services are assigned to schools to provide a variety of services. For those positions assigned to schools under Service Level Agreements, consultation for the assignment of staff is accounted for during the consultation of principals of the Service Level Agreement itself.
For those Central Services positions assigned to schools outside of Service Level Agreements, a review of consultation processes was conducted. Processes were developed when needed, refined when warranted, and documented for all . Those positions include:
Each of the processes for consulting principals on the assignment of staff for these services is provided below.

- English Language Learner Testing Personnel - Itinerant Testers (29.4 FTE - General Fund)
Staff assignments are made annually based upon alignment within Performance Zones in order to increase efficiency as staff travel between schools. This process decreases expenses related to mileage and increases time spent actively supporting schools.
Staff assignments for all AARSI personnel assigned to schools will be placed, no later than June 1st, in a Google Drive folder to which all principals and School Associate Superintendents will have access. See sample below. An email notification will be sent to all School Associate Superintendents with the attached link.
Principals requesting changes of personnel will notify the appropriate department administrator no later than June 15th .

Education Services Division

Assigned based on the needs of the school or a specific student.
English Language Learners
- ELL Coordinators (11.0 FTE – General Funded)
- ELL Project Facilitators (20.0 FTE – Zoom Funded)
- ELL Project Facilitators (18.0 FTE – Federally Funded)
Staff assignments are made annually based upon alignment within performance zones in order to improve communication between the school associate superintendent and the assigned ELL coordinator. This strategic staffing assignment affords the school associate superintendent to coordinate support for all schools within his or her performance zone through collaborating with only one or two ELL coordinators. The process also decreases expenses related to mileage and increases time spent actively supporting schools.
Project facilitators are also assigned to support each performance zone to ensure diversity of services. Considerations include: school level experience, bilingual abilities, language development expertise, and professional development experience.
Staff assignments for all ELLD personnel assigned to schools will be shared, no later than July 1, 2018, in the Cohort A, B, and C Canvas Courses to which all principals and School Associate Superintendents have access.
During the 2018−2019 school year, principals can notify the ELLD division administrator with concerns and any requested changes of ELL staff assignments. In addition, principals can share feedback using the ELLD customer service survey at http://bit.ly/2m7lb5l.
