APS – Per Deputy Superintendent Waldon – No New Non-Instructional Positions in C&I for FY14 – The Numbers Tell a Different Story


At the Budget Commission Meeting Deputy Superintendent Waldon continued to insist that there were no new positions other than teachers and paraprofessionals added to the Curriculum & Instruction Division in FY14. The Staffing Report issued this past Monday tells a different story.

The Chart below presents the changes in all positions in C&I shown in the FY14 Budget (See note below). The detailed information by Department is shown at the end of this post as well.

APS FY14 CandI Positions 060613

The data is very straight-forward. There is an increase of 99 teachers, paraprofessionals and specialist in the FY14 Budget. What is also clear is that there are 32 additional new positions in C&I in the FY14 Budget.

What explains the 32 positions if, as Ms. Waldon says, “there are no new positions in C&I”? I am sure the answer will be very interesting! Stay tuned.

Note: It appears some teaching positions were reclassified as Specialist’s in FY14 so that I have included them as a separate line item in the Chart. Also, the FY13 Amended Staffing Report erroneously indicated that there were 161 teaching positions in the Early Intervention Program – in fact there were 244 (and funding was provided for all 244). I have adjusted he Staffing Report issued this past Monday to properly reflect the actual number of positions in EIP that were authorized.

    Why the increase in line 1266 of 68 PE positions? The state increased PE requirements in 2008 (amended 2009).

    • Tamara – it is my understanding that APS was out of compliance on the requirements and Superintendent Davis took steps this year to bring it back in line. Thanks for the comment. Bob
