Tenure for Superintendents. A Report.
Weischadle, David E.
The information contained in this report was gathered from state departments of education and state organizations of local school administrators in 24 states. The purpose of the survey was to gather information on employment practices affecting school superintendents for the New Jersey Task Force on Business Efficiency of the Public Schools. The data are divided into three categories: states with continuing employment (employment status that ensures permanent employment, such as tenure), states with partial continuing employment, and states without continuing employment. Only two of the states surveyed (Minnesota and South Dakota) have continuing employment for school superintendents; the majority (14) have no continuing employment status for superintendents. The survey indicates that superintendent contract renewal in most states tends to reflect the interests of local boards of education. (Author/DS)
