  25. Louisiana Statewide Staffing Initiative Andrew Vaughan Director, Division of Certification, Preparation & Recruitment

  26. The Louisiana Statewide Staffing Initiative (LSSI) The State of Louisiana’s reform plan (RTT) calls for the adoption of a Model Staffing Initiative (MSI) to provide technical assistance in effective hiring and staffing techniques. Although Louisiana did not win RTT, with funding provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Louisiana Statewide Staffing Initiative (LSSI), was launched in October2010. The LSSI will help low-performing schools in four districts build strong instructional teams and open the school year fully staffed.

  27. The Louisiana Statewide Staffing Initiative (LSSI) • The LSSI will use five key strategies in a comprehensive effort to strengthen teacher hiring and staffing practices: • Direct priority applicants to target schools • Train principals in effective hiring • Provide personalized staffing assistance • Minimize staffing barriers • Increase the rigor of retention decisions

  28. The Louisiana Statewide Staffing Initiative (LSSI) • The LSSI is one key element of the Human Capital reform plan. Other key elements include: • Adoption of a Centralized Staffing Service (Educator Pipeline) to refer pre-screened, highly effective educators to high need schools • Transformation of teacher preparation by strengthening the Louisiana Teacher Preparation Accountability System (use Value-Added to measure program effectiveness) • Development of a Comprehensive Performance Management System (CPMS) to determine teacher and leader effectiveness (50% of evaluations based on Value-Added results) • Implement a robust Human Capital Information System (HCIS) to provide administrators with critical information to ensure that data about educator effectiveness underlies all of this work.

  29. LSSI pilot districts All 31 Louisiana Trailblazer districts were invited to participate in the LSSI, and nine responded. To select the participants, the Department of Education and The New Teacher Project examined data on each district (including rate of teacher certification, and number of teachers, schools and students), considered geographic distribution, and spoke with each district to ensure it had the capacity to benefit fully from the initiative. Four pilot districts were selected: De Soto, East Baton Rouge, Monroe City and Terrebonne.

  30. District Work Planning Session Goals & Deliverables • Consider the district’s current human capital calendar and identify where it can be adjusted to capture the best talent as early as possible • Deliver a customized staffing calendar and work plan for each district anchored to human capital goals in 4 key areas: Prioritizing improvements to the staffing timeline Reducing staffing barriers Improving the quality of new hires Increasing principal and candidate satisfaction

  31. The LSSI principal professional development series begins in January Workshop Series Topics and Content • Session 1: Marketing Your School • Identify and practice communicating school strengths and challenges in ways that inspire and appeal to prospective teachers; produce a school profile and pitch to utilize at hiring events. • Session 2: Building a Competency-based Selection Process • Explore competency-based selection models and recommended activities; opportunity to customize for school-specific needs; practice developing competency-aligned questions for maximizing interviews; practice reviewing resumes for key criteria and create follow-up questions.

  32. The LSSI principal professional development series begins in January Workshop Series Topics and Content Cont’d • Session 3: Effective Interviewing • Create customized school-specific interview questions; differentiate questions based on the candidate’s experience; practice effectively probing a candidate’s response and consider use of alternate interview components—such as a writing sample, discussion group or teaching sample. • Session 4: Induction • Discuss the benefits of providing a quality induction experience for new teachers; explore the principal’s role in induction; identify effective induction and cultivation strategies; develop an induction plan for new hires

  33. Plans to expand LSSI beyond pilot districts • Expanding LSSI to additional School Districts • 8(g) funding to sustain and expand LSSI to additional districts during 2011-12 school year. • Implementation of Summer Principal Institute.

  35. Educator Pipelines Educator Pipeline • Reorganization of LDOE in August 2010 – from an agency of compliance to an agency of support • Division of Certification, Preparation & Leadership became Division of Certification, Preparation & Recruitment • Three full time staff providing specific staffing services to districts across the state including: • Verification of certification and HQ • Competency-based pre-screening interviews • Referral of top ranked candidates

  36. Educator Pipelines • Redevelopment of the Teach Louisiana website to track pipeline activities e.g. vacancies, pipeline candidates, number of referrals, hires etc. • Preliminary goals: • At least 95% of the positions districts request help filling will have at least one qualified candidate referred to them by Pipeline team. • At least 33% of the open positions will result in hiring a referral from the pipelines staff. • At least 90% customer satisfaction with pipeline services • Results so far (since Aug. 2010): • Pipelines team referred qualified/pre-screened candidates to 146 of 156 vacancies posted statewide (93.6%) • 60 vacancies filled by Pipeline referred candidates (38.4%)

  37. Recruitment How do I take advantage of these services? • Contacts: • Barbara Burke ( • Paula Davis ( • Cathy St. Romain (

  38. Educator Pipeline • To request staffing assistance: • Email vacancy details to Educator Pipeline staff • Review resumes of pre-screened, referred candidates • Inform Educator Pipeline staff of status of the vacancy

  39. Educator Pipeline Challenges • LEA must check references and conduct background checks of prospective employees. Services provided by Ed Pipeline staff only includes pre-screening of candidates. • LEA will determine the “best fit” for filling the vacancy • LEA notifies Ed Pipeline staff when vacancy is filled; no other mechanism in place for obtaining this information
