Fringe Benefits for Superintendents in Public Schools, 1981-82. Part 1 of National Survey of Fringe Benefits in Public Schools. ERS Report.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
To help school boards and superintendents assess fringe benefit packages in their districts, this fourth biennial survey presents data on nonsalary compensation for public school superintendents in a national stratified sample of 1,036 of the nation's 11,313 public school systems. Arrayed in 38 tables, the data are classified by district enrollment size, expenditure per pupil, and geographic region. The variables covered include superintendents' years in their present position; contract length; transportation provisions and allowances; expense accounts; paid professional and civic or health club memberships; group and individual insurance and retirement plans; health examinations; tuition reimbursements; severance pay; and vacation, sabbatical, sick, and other leave provisions. Among the survey's many highlights are that almost all districts have transportation provisions, expense accounts, state retirement benefits, group hospital and medical insurance, and vacation leave for superintendents; but only three-fifths pay for professional association memberships; 30 percent allow paid sabbatical leave; and one-fifth grant tuition reimbursements.
