Accessing the Superintendency
The Unwritten Rules



October 1999 | 184 pages | Corwin

Pursuing and obtaining a superintendency is more complicated than any other educational employment process. Marilyn Tallerico demonstrates how to navigate this challenging terrain by providing an insider's view of how superintendents are found, selected, and viewed.

Research-based and very practical, Accessing the Superintendency shows how to overcome the invisible selection criteria, the unwritten rules, and the biases that often shut out qualified women and racially and ethnically diverse candidates.
