Fringe Benefits for Superintendents in Public Schools, 1979-80. Part 1 of National Survey of Fringe Benefits in Public Schools. ERS Report.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
Displayed in 38 tables, the data in this third biennial survey of public school superintendents' fringe benefits are designed to help school boards and administrators assess their non-cash compensation packages. A national sample of 797 school districts--stratified by district enrollment size, expenditure per pupil, and geographic region--supplied data on superintendents' average years of service, salaries, length of contracts, transportation provisions, expense accounts, paid professional and civic memberships, group and individual insurance and retirement plans, health examinations, paid leaves, tuition reimbursement, and severance pay. Among the survey's findings are that almost all districts provide for superintendents' travel and business expenses, professional meetings, group retirement and insurance plans, and vacation leaves, but that only 35 percent give severance pay, only one-fifth reimburse tuition payments, and a little over half pay superintendents' dues in professional organizations.
