A Study of the Supply and Demand of School Administrators in Nebraska.
Wendel, Frederick C.
A survey developed by a task force composed of the Nebraska Council of School Administrators and the Nebraska Association of School Boards was completed by 226 school superintendents, mostly from rural districts. The respondents reported that 801 administrators were employed in their districts and supplied estimates of retiring administrators. An overall retirement rate of 60.9 percent within 10 years was calculated. The positions with the largest number of vacancies within the past 5 years were, in order, senior high school principals, elementary school principals, central-office administrators, and assistant senior high school principals. This study supplies information about the number of position vacancies, qualifications for such vacancies, and improving the supply and quality of administrators. Superintendents reported a mean of 7.7 years employment as superintendents, and a mean of 7.3 years remaining before retirement. (DFR)
