Personnel Management Assistance Teams (PMATs)

Personnel Management Assistance Teams (PMATs) have been established in six regions of the state by the State Superintendent of Public instruction (SSPI) Jack O Connell for the purpose of establishing and maintaining effective personnel management, recruitment, and hiring processes. The SSPI may grant funds to the county offices of education (COE) selected to provide personnel assistance and may provide additional funding for further technical assistance as needed.

Allocation Formula Based on the recommendations of the 58 County Superintendents of County Office of Education, the Superintendent of Public Instruction has selected five COESs to house Personnel Management Assistance Teams (PMATs) and a sixth COE to house both a PMAT and the state clearinghouse. The $3 million will be allocated as follows: (1) $250,000 per team, plus a per teacher allocation based on a proportion of the California Basic Educational Data System (CBEDS) estimated number of teacher hires for the prior year in the geographic area served by the team ($65.98 per teacher hire in 2006-07); and (2) 5% of the total, or $150,000 plus rounding, to the clearinghouse.
