This project is an attempt to devise a staffing formula for the Willow Creek School Division. Firstly, a review of the literature on the topic was undertaken. Then, with the cooperation of the senior administrators of several comparable school systems in Alberta who provided pertinent documents for examination, an investigation into their staffing policies and practices was initiated. Thirdly, meetings were conducted with the Superintendent of Schools for Willow Creek School Division for the purpose of combining what has been learned with the needs of each of its unique situations. Finally, simulations were conducted to test the two formula proposals developed using three schools in Willow Creek as testing grounds. This document will provide a foundation for the process of devising staffing policy for the Willow Creek School Division; it will be passed along to a formal committee of school administrators charged with the responsibility of finalizing a staffing system.
