ABSTRACT. A pending shortage in the position of public school superintendent is predicted due to retirements and the new accountability standards for public schools. This study was designed to contribute to the body of educational literature in regards to gender differences faced by school superintendents in regards to compensation, promotion track and performance evaluation. The first research question, explored the possibility of continued issues with the gender pay gap for superintendents. The second research question explored the career path of superintendents examining the gender specific paths of women through the elementary principalship and men through the secondary principalship. A survey developed in 2004 by Montz was administered to a stratified random sample of female and male superintendents across Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. Demographic variables of age, race, marital status, education, district typology and alary were collected. Significant findings and implications for educational leaders are discussed. pp. 53–77

Keywords: compensation, promotion, gender equity, career path
