Most school districts calculate staffing allocations using a simple formula. This formula has been used for years to determine the current amount of staffing for a school.
The formula looks like:
(School’s total enrollment) / (Desired average class size) = (Number of full time teachers)
Ex: 1200 / 22 = 54.5 FTE (Full Time Equivalent)
But there is a flaw in this formula. It leaves out many key elements required to successfully calculate correct FTE numbers, such as:
Enrollment by Grade Level
Number of Periods
Taking these elements into account, D2S2 has developed a robust, one-of-a-kind program that is designed to provide accurate solutions to your district's staffing needs.
