On the eve of its National Conference on Education in Nashville, Tenn., AASA, The School Superintendents Association, released the organization’s second annual superintendent salary study.

The 2013 Superintendents Salary and Benefits Study was distributed to more than 9,000 superintendents. Some of the report’s key findings included:

  • Nearly half of the participating superintendents described their districts’ economic conditions as stable while more than 40 percent described their districts’ economic conditions as “declining.”
  • Median salaries grew with increasing district enrollment.
  • In most cases, median salaries for female superintendents were slightly higher than those for male superintendents.
  • Base median salaries increased by 1-2 percent from the 2012-13 to the 2013-14 school year.

The 2013 study showed a nearly 10 percent increase in superintendents who are subject to an annual evaluation. The study also observed that 40 percent of superintendents indicated student performance data are included in their evaluations.
