DCPS leads the state in administrators. Trending up!

From the Tampa Times by Cara Fitzpatrick

The Pinellas County School District has chipped away at its top-heavy administration.
That’s an improvement over last year when Pinellas was second highest, beat only by Duval County.
But Pinellas still has a ways to go to fight the bloat. Several larger school districts, including Miami-Dade, Broward, Hillsborough and Palm Beach counties, have a better balance of district administrators to employees.

The Florida Association of District School Superintendents, which conducted the study, recommended a massive reorganization of the top administration, including changes to the superintendent’s cabinet, overhauling the curriculum department and cutting the position of deputy superintendent. (Jim Madden, who was second-in-command, retired.)

The district administrator to all employee ratios:

2011/12                                                          
Duval 1.91 percent
Pinellas 1.24
Lee 1.13
Orange 0.93
Miami Dade 0.72
Palm Beach 0.71
Polk 0.55
Broward 0.50
Hillsborough 0.40

2012/13
Duval 1.96 percent
Lee 1.10
Orange 0.98
Pinellas 0.74
Palm Beach 0.71
Broward 0.67
Miami Dade 0.65
Polk 0.51
