You are the school principal at George Madison Elementary. You are required to create a staffing plan for the next school year that includes identifying areas in which additional staff will be needed. You will also create an interview process to determine the most eligible candidates. Your superintendent has informed you that you will have $225,000 more in your staffing budget for hiring additional employees. These extra hires would result in a staff beyond what will need to be replaced because of teacher attrition. Your superintendent has also provided some assumptions for how far the additional funds in your staffing budget can be spread. The costs associated with new hires are as follows: Teachers with zero to four years of experience with only a bachelors degree usually require $61,000 (including base salary plus benefits). Teachers working five to nine years with a maximum of a bachelors degree usually require $71,000 (including base salary plus benefits). If teachers have a masters degree, $4,000 is typically added to the base salary. Besides hiring new teachers, you have considered hiring for positions that do not currently exist in your school. For instance, teachers increasingly notify you of the need for addressing students mental health issues. So you have thought about hiring a social worker (which generally costs $86,000, including base salary plus benefits) or school psychologist (which typically requires $93,000, including base salary plus benefits). You have also considered hiring a technical support analyst (which usually costs $81,000, including base salary plus benefits) since increasing enrollment has resulted in a demand for more technology support.
