Background: On June 25, 2020, Resolution 2021R-005 regarding Central Region staffing was introduced and referred to the Committee on Accountability, Finance and Personnel. The resolution was discussed at the July 30, 2020 and September 24, 2020 Board meetings, at which time the Administration provided additional analysis as requested by the Board.

At the September 24, 2020, meeting, the Board approved a motion to send the resolution back to committee. The motion also included direction to the Administration to form a task force to review possible revisions in current policies or procedures to increase the recruitment and long-term stability of employees working in hard-to-staff schools.

As reported last month, the Administration formed the task force and the first meeting took place on October 29, 2020. The task force includes representation from the Board, central administrators, school leaders, parents, and the MTEA.

At the first meeting, task force participants gained an understanding of the resolution and their role as detailed in the motion that was approved by the Milwaukee Board of School Directors on September 24, 2020. In addition, the Office of Human Resources presented an overview of the staffing process.

The second meeting of the task force is November 12, 2020. The focus of this meeting will be to discuss various perspectives and observations relative to staff concerns at schools. The Administration will continue to report to the Board on a monthly basis.
