This article examines special characteristics of the practice of succession pool establishment in the current general education system of the Russian Federation. Documents published on official websites of local and regional executive educational authorities, as well as methodical and informational materials characterizing establishment and development of succession pool in the general education system were analyzed. All subjects of the Russian Federation were covered by analysis. The period of 2010-2015 was studied. The authors of the article determined that the practice of succession pool establishment in the general education system is associated only with filling in vacant managerial positions. The researchers discuss deficiencies of that approach regarding improvement of human resources supply, because the main problems of the system are lack of staff in general, lack of young specialists, and aging of educational staff. As a tool to solve the problems mentioned above, the authors propose to use an expanded version of the practice of succession pool generation, which involves not only an operating pool, but also a strategic pool and a pool of young specialists.
