OKLAHOMA CITY - More than 300 public school district superintendents have resigned since 2006, state Education Department records show, while another 218 have retired or been fired during that same time.
Records show that smaller districts have been particularly hard hit by these exiting administrators.
Between 2006 and 2011, state Education Department records show that 312 district superintendents resigned from their jobs. So far this year, five have resigned, although the bulk of the resignations typically come later in the school year.
The peak came in 2008, when 75 left via resignation. Only 35 resigned in 2006.
