Joshua Starr’s Three-year Tenure As Superintendent On Par With Big-City National Average

Joshua Starr’s resignation after three and a half years as superintendent of Montgomery County Public Schools means his tenure will have been shorter than the national average, which is close to six years, according to AASA, a national association of school superintendents.

But Starr’s tenure is typical for the nation’s large urban school systems. The Council of the Great City Schools, an organization of more than 50 of the county’s large urban school systems, found that the average tenure for superintendents fell from 3.6 years in 2010 to 3.2 years in 2014.
