Summary

This paper presents findings from a study that determined the conditions that encouraged school administrators to move between and among school districts. Data were derived from a survey of 1,010 Nebraska administrators on the membership list of the Nebraska Council of School Administrators. A total of 812 usable responses (an 80.3 percent response rate) were received. Findings indicate that respondents moved in order to improve their salaries, attain higher line positions, or work in larger schools. Unsolicited notes from the respondents pointed to the reality of school politics and personal considerations for administrative movement; many mentioned geographic preferences, stress, and family concerns. A few people did return to the profession after careers in other fields. The most pressing situation concerns the number of administrators who listed retirement as the 5-year career goal (11 percent). Almost one-fifth of superintendents planned to retire within the next 5 years. It is recommended that boards and administrators communicate openly and honestly about mutual expectations, conditions of work career paths, and future plans. Boards should also encourage women and minority populations to attain key administrative positions. Seven tables are included. (LMI)
