Has anyone experienced downsizing in a school district? Often, a number of weeks notice must be given to teachers. In Delaware, educators get sixty day notice and paraprofessionals get thirty days notice.
How can an administrator handle this so that instruction and school climate are not damaged?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The administration should give the teachers notice and instruction at the correct time and the instruction should be done in a professional way to avoid downgrading them and instead they should be motivated to enable the school environment to be very conducive for learning. Moreover, this will ensure that the climate of the school is preserved for high academic excellence. The administrators therefore have the responsibilities that the instruction are well disseminated and teachers do not feel downsized.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
