IASA Aspiring Superintendent Academy (ASA)
July 9-13, 2018 in Springfield, IL
Have you ever wondered what you didn't learn in graduate school but you may need to know in order to be an effective leader? If you are thinking about becoming a school superintendent then #ASuperWeek in July 2018 is for you! The learning classes will be organized to provide for active learning as well as daily reflection time. In addition, there will be many simulations during the week for hands-on learning opportunities.
Completed applications must be submitted online by Friday, March 16, 2018.
IASA is pleased to offer a series of workshops at locations around the state designed to introduce, educate and understand both the Evidence-Based Model (EBM) and Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), as well as examine the relationship between the two. This series will be divided into three individual workshops provided once a month in January, February and March. The concept of the workshops is to break down each law and allow superintendent and administrative teams the opportunity to apply the new law to their individual districts. The final workshop in March will combine the knowledge of the individual laws and concepts to implement both the EBM and ESSA, as well as a communication plan that is applicable to each school district.
