Superintendent Salary Survey launches in July

Ready! Set! Go! We kick off the annual salary survey season with the launch of the TASB/TASA Superintendent Salary Survey. On July 21, an invitation to the online questionnaire will be e-mailed to school district superintendents. The due date to submit your superintendent salary data is Aug. 28.

The survey takes a comprehensive look at the compensation and benefits of Texas’ top school executives. Make the most of your HR Services membership by taking part in this one-of-a-kind survey. Districts that submit data can use DataCentral to create valuable market comparison reports. Contact us at 800.580.7782 or by e-mail at if you have any questions about the survey.

Update your HR Services contact information

Each year we provide you with an opportunity to update your district contacts and online user information. Our goal is to ensure that you continue to receive HR Services news, information, and event announcements. In mid-June, HR Services sent each program contact a list of the information we have on file for their district. Please be sure to review the information and confirm that it’s correct, or make the necessary changes, additions, and deletions, and return the form to us at by July 1.
