The solution is rather simple. “Of the 13,526 people employed by the school district, 5,538 are classroom teachers.”
It’s elementary arithmetic that there are 7,988 employees who are not classroom teachers. So, for every seven teachers there are 10 other employees.
The core mission of the CCSD should be educating students, and teachers are the front line of this activity. Every single employee’s daily work must be confronted with the question of whether or not their effort is educating a student. If not, that activity should be evaluated as to whether or not it serves the core mission.
The CCSD should do its homework and cut some overhead before asking Gov. Deal to give it more of our money.
