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:

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
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
