Schools set restructure admin plan

Print Article

BELOIT - The School District of Beloit's new organizational chart will reduce central office administrators in favor of pushing more resources out to the school buildings to meet student needs, Interim Superintendent Tony Bosco said in an interview Monday morning.

The net jobs lost and created should even out, with the plan calling for about $100,000 in additional budgetary costs.

The two assistant superintendent positions now held by Darrell Williams and Anthony Bonds will be eliminated.

The school board last week approved incoming Superintendent Stanley Munro's reorganizational plan, with input from Bosco. The district waited to release details until staff could be notified.

On Monday, Bosco explained how staff will be reduced at the central office to become leaner and more efficient. With a little more than 20 administrative positions at central office currently, Bosco said four to five of the positions will be eliminated and/or repurposed.

The new executive level cabinet will only have executive directors, not assistant superintendents, so the positions of Williams and Bonds are being cut. Their roles and responsibilities will be shifted to other administrators. All of the directors and staff will have equity as part of their job descriptions. The executive director of school leadership and equity position will direct the equity initiative's and activities. It's a new position to be brought before the board for approval tonight.

Bosco said the district will be able to add assistant principals at all of the elementary schools. Previously the elementaries had one administrator per building and behavioral specialist positions. The behavioral specialist positions will be eliminated.

"The assistant principal position is more all encompassing than that of behavior specialists. The goal is to focus on instruction and building operations and social emotional learning. Now each elementary will have an assistant principal and principal working in concert on those things," Bosco said.

Math interventionist positions will also be eliminated and the number of reading positions will be reduced through attrition. By making the cuts the district will be able to hire 12 STEM instructional coaches and 12 instructional literacy coaches to dispatch in school buildings.

Bosco also said the district has been working with the Beloit Education Association on a compensation plan for teachers which will be discussed in closed session this evening.

"We are trying to be competitive with our surrounding school districts to attract and retain quality school staff," Bosco said.

Bosco said he will be announcing any potential decisions made in closed session regarding compensation following the Tuesday meeting.
