Oklahoma Superintendent Salaries

Here's a table showing what superintendents at each Oklahoma school district earned in 2013-2014, as recorded by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

Some totals are partial-year compensation because the superintendent took office during the fiscal year. Enrollment was not provided for some districts, so pay-per-student was not calculated. Total compensation per student is not intended as a definitive measure of whether someone is overpaid or underpaid, only as a starting point for comparing superintendent salaries among districts of all sizes.

Click or tap on a column heading to re-order the table. Search by county, district or name.

4 thoughts on “Oklahoma Superintendent Salaries

  1. Joseph Trower is no longer the superintendent at Ryal school, thank goodness! While there, try double and then some on that $51,000 salary!

  2. It appears that some are being compensated far above others according to the census. Why is that? I realize that tenure is figured in but what else?

  3. Disheartening. Especially when many of our students could gain much more in their education with the over kill these people make. The school boards have the final say so in majority of matters and they get nothing. It is a disgrace to know these people have this income and state is rated so poorly in scores.

  4. This information is far from correct! Small rural schools that have one administrator to do all things are shown with exploded costs.
    I am a superintendent. I mow grass, vacuum halls, landscape, clean and will also be teaching 3 classes next year with 1 coaching assignment. In other words we do what we have to in order to keep our little schools open. I believe my school is run a lot more efficient than some of the larger schools that have LAYER UPON LAYER OF ADMINISTRATION. PRINCIPALS, ASSIST. PRINCIPALS, DEPUTY OR ASSIST. SUPERINTENDENTS, FEDERAL PROGRAM DIRECTORS, AND THE LIST GOES ON! Not to mention expensive coaching staffs.

    I would invite the writers of this skewed article or the detractors to visit Albion Public School and see how we run our district. But then, before issuing another untrue article to also put in all of the layers of Administration of some of the huge schools. My love is the small rural Oklahoma Schools. I do not make 100-250,000 per year. That’s great for those folks that do.
    I doubt very seriously that those large district superintendents have ever ridden a Grasshopper lawn mower in 100 degree weather or dug a hole to plant a tree. How many times do they get to walk down the hall and have the little kids give them a big hug!

    It angers me when our small rural schools are always targeted, saying we are inefficient. Check finances and carry covers, usually the small schools are doing better. Our children are of the utmost importance to us and as the Chief Administrator we know their names.
    In closing, I’m a conservative and take care of my school. When facts are given, show the whole truth and not skewed data. I don’t believe the writers set out to deceive or at least I hope not. But, ignorance of school operations can contribute to misleading data.

    Sincerely,
    C. Lynn Bullard
