Career moves are not unusual for a superintendent. Almost every week we learn about school system leaders taking similar positions in other school districts. My own career as a superintendent began at Deer Park Schools on Long Island and concluded at Fairfax County Public Schools in Northern Virginia with a few stops in between.
I know firsthand how challenging that is, particularly when it requires an out-of-state move. I bring this to your attention because AASA, in partnership with PDK International, is pleased to announce a new professional leadership program specifically designed to help superintendents who are transitioning from one position to another.
The inaugural AASA Superintendent Transition Cohort will feature a series of highly interactive sessions designed to help new and veteran superintendents engage in reflective practice as well as network with colleagues nationwide.
AASA has a long-standing relationship with PDK International and we're excited to partner with Josh Starr and his team on this initiative. It will highly benefit those who are transitioning into new settings within the school district and the community. Some of the benefits of participating in the cohort include:
Participants will also receive a one-year membership to Phi Delta Kappa, which includes access to a range of services, supports and resources such as the Kappan magazine, research briefs, videos, readings and networking opportunities.
I know I would've benefitted from a program like this when I was a superintendent. I encourage you to share this information with those you think it would help. Our initial cohort begins in July. Please note the priority deadline to register is May 15, 2018. You may find more information on our website, or register here.
For more information, please contact Bernadine Futrell, AASA director, leadership services, at 703.875.0717 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
