ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - There are high expectations for school superintendents, and most make six-figures.

In light of recent controversy surrounding the Fox C-6 district's outgoing superintendent and her $260,000 salary, we wanted to find out what all the district heads in Missouri make.

We filed a Freedom of Information request for every superintendent salary in Missouri. Among the highest paying are: Kirkwood's at $264,088, Lindbergh at $238,372, and Rockwood will pay new superintendent Dr. Eric Knost $235,000.

Some parents we talked to in Webster Groves were surprised to learn that their superintendent makes $200,000 to lead a district of about 4,400 students. City of St. Louis is about five times bigger and pays its superintendent $225,004.

"They should be paid according to what they do because they're on call seven days a week, 24 hours a day," Washington University professor Dr. Susan Uchitelle said. "If they aren't getting results that the school boards anticipate, then it's up to them to decide what they should do with their head chief or superintendent."

Dr. Uchitelle says superintendents are CEOs of their district. She tells NewsChannel 5 some districts have to pay higher salaries than you might expect to entice someone to take a job that might be a little more difficult. For example, Jennings pays its superintendent $192,500. Normandy pays $184,000. While the larger and more affluent Ladue pays $180,400.

"So I think in the urban areas, I think it's even harder than the suburban areas in terms of the students that they get and the expectations," Dr. Uchitelle said.

The highest paid superintendent in the state is Lee's Summit. He makes more than $282,000.

There are a number of superintendents making less than $50,000.
