Salary Cap Restrictions

State of the Superintendency
Few superintendents in an AASA national survey with nearly 2,400 respondents indicated their employment agreement was subject to a state- or district-imposed cap on salary. Equally noteworthy: While a relatively small number, twice as many female superintendents than male superintendents report working in a district where a salary cap is imposed by state law.

Fewer than 5 percent of those responding said a salary limit is imposed by school district policy, regulation or practice.

Still to be determined is this: For those subject to a cap, how has their collective employment profile (e.g., longevity, early retirement, recruiting pools) been affected?
