In our district, every core content area has a Coordinator that works K-12. They oversee the entire department. We also have an elementary instructional specialist (some contents have 2), a junior high instructional specialist, and a high school instructional specialist at the district level. In addition, each campus has a campus instructional specialist. Our elementary campuses (16) self-contain Kinder and 1st, and some begin departmentalizing in 2nd grade. It really depends on number of students and number of teachers per campus. We have some self-contained teachers K-5 depending on numbers. Sometimes we have 2-way partners where one teacher teaches the ELA/SS and the other teacher teaches Math/Science. Other times we have 3-way splits (typically only in 4th and 5th). Every campus is a little different and it changes yearly due to student enrollment numbers at each campus and grade level.
