The Superintendent's Compensation Package.
Hertzke, Eugene R.
Guidelines are presented to help school boards evaluate superintendents and set up their compensation packages. The author describes informal and formal evaluation procedures and states his preference for the latter, since they promote mutual understanding between the superintendent and the board. A flow chart illustrates a superintendent evaluation process, and a form is offered for rating a superintendent's accomplishment of district goals. After listing both the board's and the superintendent's compensation objectives, the author compares these objectives with the possible elements of a compensation package. The board's compensation objectives include a package that is equitable, legal, attractive, acceptable to the community, and linked to the board's fiscal responsibilities and to the superintendent's needs and performance. The superintendent's objectives involve current and long-term income, job security, opportunities for job enrichment and outside activities, and a reward for effective performance. The discussion of fringe benefits is related to the results of a national survey on benefits of educational administrators. (RW)
