19. Examine the expense of LATTS, Instructional Coaches, & Teacher Specialists

Suggestion:

·         Examine the General Fund cost/expenditures of LATSS (if any)

·         Examine the General Fund expenditures of the teacher specialists (if any)

·         Examine the General Fund expenditures of the Instructional Coaches (if any)

 
Response
Each of these positions are funded by restricted federal funding that do not impact the general fund, with the exception of the LATSS position.  The LATSS position is 50% funded by PAR (Peer Assistance and Review) state categorical funding which has not been swept into General Fund expenditures, and the other 50% is funded by Federal Jobs dollars.  LATSS / PAR is an Education Code requirement for assisting new certificated teachers and the function cannot be completely eliminated.
