In some areas of the country, female administrators are underrepresented in educational administration when compared to the number of female teachers. A review of data from the Florida Department of Education’s website was utilized to examine school level administrative staff, district level administrative staff, and total administrative staff during school year 2010-2011. This snapshot provided some insight into the overall numbers of male and female administrators in Florida’s Public School Districts, and the snapshot captured where these administrators worked in the state of Florida.
