Information about Schools Per Full-Time Equivalents (FTE)
- Survey results from large authorizers show no consistency and marked variation in staffing patterns. While the most typical staffing ratio is 1 FTE for every 3-5 schools overseen, note that approximately only one-third (35%) of large authorizers follow that staffing pattern.
- There are also authorizers with extremely high and low school-per-FTE patterns: 10% of authorizers appear to be very highly staffed, with 1 FTE for every 1-2 schools in their portfolio, while authorizers on the other end of the distribution have large portfolios of schools and few staff (11% of authorizers have 1 FTE for every 21 [or more] schools in their portfolio).
