ABSTRACT
The article presents a survey on the assessment of the district superintendent positions conducted among Kentucky public school principals. The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) formed a statewide K-12 leadership consortium known as the State Action for Education Leadership Policy (SAELP) assigned to conduct a study related to administrator recruitment and development. It was concluded that school districts can only obtain the leadership needed through a successful recruitment.
