DALI's Public School Superintendent Compensation & Career Report

Superintendents' Frustrations Grow, but Intangible Rewards Remain High

Cover of District Administration Salary SurveyThe nation’s K12 school superintendents are increasingly fatigued and frustrated by pressures to accomplish more in their districts with less resources. For most, though, personal commitment to public education helps overcome sources of stress stemming from many aspects of their jobs.

That’s the top-level finding of the 2012 Public School Superintendent Salary & Career Report, which was prepared by the District Administration Leadership Institute (DALI), the professional development arm of District Administration magazine. The DALI report’s conclusions come from a survey of U.S. superintendents and in-depth interviews with selected superintendent-members of the Institute and other district leaders.
