In Monroe County School District in Mississippi, the superintendent is elected.

Monroe County School District superintendent Scott Cantrell and deputy superintendent Brian Jernigan are featured in a recent issue of District Administration magazine. The article, “Stepping up to school leadership,” focuses on how districts can develop succession strategies before a superintendent moves on.
