Mar 6, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Of the 77 largest urban school districts, only 20 superintendents have stayed in their current jobs since 2020. This panel will discuss how a new program is training a diverse group of aspiring superintendents to successfully lead large urban school systems. Participants gain new skills as they attend sessions on school board relations, academics, media relations, and finances. Other facets of the program include individual coaching, mentoring, case studies, and shadowing successful urban school superintendents. Learn how this program is training the next generation of urban school leaders.
