Median base salaries for the nation's district superintendents rose modestly this school year—1 percent to 2 percent—from 2012-13, and in most cases, salaries for female schools chiefs were a bit higher than for their male peers, according to a new survey.

The survey by AASA, or the School Superintendents Association, collected responses from more than 2,300 top school leaders, 70 percent of whom described their districts as rural.

More than 40 percent of the respondents said that student outcomes and testing data are part of their annual evaluations. More than 10 percent said they have been rehired as schools chiefs after retiring a sign of an "aging superintendent population and potentially narrowing pool of individuals interested in entering the superintendency," according to the survey.
