Superintendent turnover high across Massachusetts
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Returning to classrooms across the state and region, students have been busy adjusting to the leadership styles of their new teachers— a process many of those same educators have also recently undergone with the leadership in their district.
During the past decade, an average of 55 to 65 school superintendents leave their post each year in Massachusetts. Tom Scott, executive director of the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents, said most school chiefs leave their position to take another superintendency in the state or retire.
"We've seen a heavy turnover of superintendents in the past decade," said Scott. "That doesn't seem to be ending at all."
