Southeast Georgia School Superintendents make six figures and often are paid well below their metro Atlanta counterparts. Some main issues facing rural schools in Georgia are teacher shortages in critical subjects (math and science), transportation costs, and increases in healthcare contributions often challenge school district budgets. School superintendents wear many hats to run a school district, and answer to the locally elected school board of education. School superintendents are judged on by their school district’s performance contract (strategic waiver contract) with the state board of education and overall performance of other local variables such as finances and operations.
