Reorganization Proposal
Reorganization Proposal
Posted on 01/11/2019

At the Board of Education meeting, earlier this week, I proposed a change to the structure of the current administration of the Oneida City School District.

As a school district, we have seen a decline in enrollment and a dramatic increase of students and families that need various support services including academic, social, emotional, health, and welfare needs. There is no single administrative staff member focusing on social emotional learning, career/college readiness, school climate/student engagement, and attendance programs throughout the district- K-12.

With this proposed structure, the district would eliminate the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction position and replace it with the district wide position of Administrator for Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment. The Administrator for Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment position will focus on curriculum, instruction and assessment throughout the district and some duties of the former Assistant Superintendent for Instruction will move to the Superintendent.  Additionally, the district would eliminate the High School Principal position and replace the position with a district wide and building position of Executive Principal K-12.  The Executive Principal will service the High School and have K-12 responsibilities to provide and facilitate a continuous support for students in the areas of social and emotional developmental learning, career/college readiness, school climate/student engagement, and attendance.

The Board of Education will review and debate the pros and cons of this proposal in January and February with a decision on the proposal in March. If the proposal is approved the district will advertise and interview candidates for the positions of Administrator for Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment and Executive Principal with a start date for each position in July 2019.

I believe that this new structure will allow the district to improve school conditions for student learning by providing social and emotional developmental supports for students, providing effective transitions from elementary school to middle school and from the middle school to high school, improving school climate, making discipline practices more positive, and increasing student engagement.
