This study examines superintendent turnover in Kentucky public school districts for 1998/99-2007/08, looking at how turnover varies by rural status, Appalachian and non-Appalachian region, and 2007/08 school district characteristics. Key findings include: (1) Kentucky school districts averaged one superintendent turnover during 1998/99-2007/08; (2) Average superintendent turnover rates in rural and nonrural school districts over 1998/99-2007/08 were within one-tenth of a point of each other; (3) Average superintendent turnover rates in Appalachian and non-Appalachian school districts over 1998/99-2007/08 were within one-tenth of a point of each other; (4) Statewide, superintendent turnover varied with school districts' demographic, fiscal, and achievement characteristics. However, the differences did not show patterns strong or consistent enough to suggest associations between these characteristics and superintendent turnover; and (5) In both rural and nonrural school districts and in both Appalachian and non-Appalachian school districts, superintendent turnover varied with demographic, fiscal, and achievement characteristics. However, the differences did not show patterns strong or consistent enough to suggest systematic differences between rural and nonrural school districts or between Appalachian and non- Appalachian school districts. Data and Methodology are appended. (Contains 2 boxes, 2 maps, 1 figure, 9 tables and 2 notes.)
