NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's 41 school superintendents will have to re-apply for their jobs this summer under a new policy that sets stricter job qualifications.
Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina (fah-REEN'-yah) made the announcement Tuesday.
New applicants will need at least 10 years of experience as educators, including three as principal. Previously, they needed only three years of experience as a principal or in a supervisory role at the central office.
Under the new rules, superintendents will have additional responsibilities including professional development and parent engagement.
Officials say they expect most of the superintendents to be rehired.
Superintendents on average earn $156,000.
