Goal 6: Responsibly and efficiently allocate resources including finances, facilities, personnel and time.

Objective 2: All personnel, time, and facility space will be allocated responsibly and flexibly based on the Mission-related needs of students and the financial realities of the district.

The current status:

Parkway compares favorably to other districts in the state and St. Louis County. Average Salaries are above average salaries for State and County districts. Student to classroom teachers are lower indicating smaller classrooms than average for other districts. Meanwhile on average Parkway has fewer administrators per student than other districts.

Why the objective is important:

Although this has always been an important aspect of district decision making, it is now essential. In order to meet mission it is critical that limited resources are utilized as effectively and efficiently as possible. Current economic conditions have resulted in revenues being essentially flat from year to year while costs continue to grow. The ongoing process of evaluating and re-aligning assets with the district mission/vision, strategic plan, and student results will provide opportunities to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of resource allocation.

How the objective is measured:

As a method to gauge responsible personnel allocation against an external measure; district, county, and state benchmark comparisons will be used for teacher salary, teacher ratio, and administrator ratio.
