 Today, AASA released the 2014 AASASuperintendents Salary and Benefits Study. This is the third edition coming from AASA, and received over 1,700 responses from all 50 states. Thank you to all of you who participated!


The survey’s key findings included:

Base salaries ranged from $36,000 to $315,000, with an average salary of $122,000 and a median salary of $113,000.

Respondents are predominately male (79 percent), White (94 percent) and from intermediate-sized districts (300-2,499 students) regardless of their gender.

Female respondents were, on average, older than male respondents (53.1 to 51.7 percent respectively).

A three-year trend of improving economic conditions continues. Slightly more than half of the respondents (53 percent) reported their districts’ economic conditions as stable (50 percent in 2013; 45 percent in 2012).


The survey revealed a small trend toward longer longevity compared with 2013 results. Over half of respondents described their districts’ economic conditions as stable for the first time; this year, 53 percent said so, compared to 50 percent in 2013 and 45 percent in 2012. Despite this positive change, nearly four in 10 respondents still described their districts’ economic conditions as declining.
