Personnel Management Assistance Teams (PMATs)

Funding Description

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.

The COE must demonstrate how it will address the personnel management needs of school districts within its region. Each PMAT shall consist of persons having extensive experience in school district personnel administration, including recruitment, selection, organization, and staffing.
