The Current Trend of the Job Description of School Superintendents in the United States. Report of a Study.
Chand, Krishan
From a sample of over 1,000 advertisements for school superintendent positions, this study compiles a list of qualifications and tasks required of most superintendents and indicates the trends in school board expectations of superintendents. The author first notes the degree of education preferred by school boards in their superintendents and then analyzes the work experiences generally required of candidates for superintendent positions. The tasks and personal qualities expected of practicing superintendents are detailed, as well. Despite the wide differences in school size and location, no significant relationship was found between demographic variables and requirements of those seeking superintendent positions. (JW)
