2016-17 Montana District/School Leadership Staffing Report
SAM annually creates an analysis of school administrator staffing in Montana's schools. The 2016-17 Montana District/School Leadership Staffing report shows that the administration of our schools is effective and efficient with 1061 students per Superintendent and 250 students per Administrator (Superintendents and Principals); and each Administrator supervises 25.9 licensed professional and paraprofessional staff. These ratios compare very favorably to other public and private sector industries, (11.7 employees per healthcare administrator, 6.5 employees per construction manager, 5.6 employees per manufacturing manager. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics/Educational Research Service) and disprove the popular but inaccurate refrain that there is too much administration in Montana's public schools.
