AASA, The School Superintendents Association represents superintendents at the national level. From advocating on your behalf and on behalf of the children you serve, then successfully pushing for the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to successfully working to double the dollars available through E-Rate, we are your support structure. We care about your professional development and we care about your well-being.
To help you with the problems and situations you face daily, we will share stories, tips and tools from successful practitioners. We will share the names of superintendents that have successfully implemented programs you may be contemplating. Additionally, we will keep you informed of what’s going on in Congress and the US Department of Education. We will ask you to share your stories or pose your requests for information or where to find the appropriate resources. We will do that for you because you are an educational leader and a champion for children in the community you serve.
School system leaders create meaningful change for the students they serve and their communities.
Women comprise more than 70% of the education workforce, but few occupy the top leadership position in U.S. public school systems. AASA launched an inspiring video series to provide a firsthand account of the leadership journeys of nine women superintendents who have made it to the top job.
