A study of California public schools shows the future labor demand for school administrators varies drastically by county and could be exacerbated in rapidly growing areas where many baby boom generation administrators are nearing retirement.

The study, conducted by the Regional Educational Laboratory at WestEd for the Institute for Education Sciences, estimates some counties may need enough new administrative hires in the next decade to replace 71 percent of their workforce, while other counties may need to replace only 9 percent.

The report found the greatest future need to be in the north-central portions of the state—a region where many counties face additional challenges of high poverty, high levels of student diversity, and low levels of parental educational attainment.
