The Dist. 86 Hinsdale Township school board voted to hire an the equivalent of 6.4 full-time staff for the start of the 2014-15 school year.

The Board’s actions came at the recommendation of District 86 Superintendent Dr. Bruce Law, who worked with Hinsdale Central High School administrators to conduct a detailed modeling and analysis of staffing needs based on updated enrollment numbers and actual course registrations, which were just recently finalized. 

District officials now anticipate that 2014-2015 enrollment at Hinsdale Central High School will increase by 79 students, approximately 16 percent higher than originally estimated.

“Having a better sense of exactly how many students we would enroll next year along with their specific course registrations allowed us to create an actual schedule that showed us with great precision where class sizes exceed optimum levels,” Law said. “This allowed us to be very strategic and specific in identifying the staffing levels needed to ensure our ability to offer a wide range of course options that support students’ ability to meet graduation requirements and achieve their postsecondary education and career goals.”

Specifically, the board voted to increase staffing at Hinsdale Central High School in the following areas:

·         English 0.9 FTE

·         Mathematics 1.2 FTE

·         Physical Education, 0.8 FTE

·         Science 0.2 FTE

·         Special Education 1.0 FTE

·         Social Studies 1.1 FTE

Dist. 86 officials determined that the increased staffing level can be achieved within 2014- 2015 budget parameters, according a district news advisory.
