Mississippi has a new requirement for their superintendent of schools:
Mississippi is sending a strong message to its superintendents: Fix your low-performing school districts within a two-year period, or you’re out.
Under legislation signed May 12 by Gov. Haley Barbour, local superintendents would lose their jobs if their districts were labeled “underperforming” as measured by the state accountability system for two years in a row. Education Week.
Let's hope our new superintendent/director's contract gives us some real power. I don't know anyone who wants to fork over another quarter of a million dollars to get rid of another underperforming director of schools.
