The Aspiring Superintendents Academy is designed for those experienced district leaders, building leaders, and teacher leaders who aspire to the role of superintendent.  

The Academy will demystify the position of the school superintendent and provide participants with a blueprint for success in key areas of the role. Using real-world, situational leadership tasks, participants will work side-by-side with peers and current superintendents as instructors and mentors to prepare them to become district leaders. Participants will also benefit from expanding their professional networks and interacting with colleagues across the state. Whether you have already attained your superintendent certification or are thinking of entering a certification program, this professional learning opportunity will energize you around the possibilities!
