In the Market for a Head
of School or Superintendent?
You’re not alone.
Leadership Turnover is a Secret Scourge.
It’s an unfortunate reality for many educational institutions. With Head of School/Superintendent tenure dropping, administrators retiring in unprecedented numbers, and fewer qualified candidates in the pipeline, leadership succession has become an increasingly difficult experience for Boards of Trustees.
When a Head of School/Superintendent resigns or retires, chaos usually follows. Boards scramble to find a replacement. Teacher turnover increases. Parents get skittish. Student retention rates drop. Operating funds are diverted to pay search firm fees, which are typically one third of the incoming leader’s first-year salary. Enthusiasm is high as the new Head of School or Superintendent takes the reins, but after a few years, he or she is gone. You’re back to square one.
