In education in the United States, a superintendent (also known as a chief school administrator in many states) is an individual who has executive oversight and administration rights, usually within an educational entity or organization.

Many state departments of education in the United States refer to their senior administrator as superintendent.Generally, public school district superintendents are selected by a school board of a local school district. As chief executive officer of the public school, the superintendent has oversight for what is often one of the larger businesses within the community the district serves.

Most superintendents are members on the board of education (school board) of their school district, but they usually cannot vote as members of the board.
