Audience: Aspiring superintendents. 


Purpose:
 The Aspiring Superintendent Program represents the commitment of AWSA and WASDA to invite and nurture the development of future school district leaders in Wisconsin. This effort will result in an ever-growing, high-quality pool of prepared candidates for district administrator positions to ensure that the condition of our profession will continue to improve as we meet the challenges of the future.

This vision will be realized by:

  • Attracting highly motivated, talented, and committed educators to pursue leadership in Wisconsin's school districts; 
  • Supporting principals and other administrators to explore and prepare for service as district administrators; and,
  • Connecting aspiring district administrators with an active network of other future leaders and practicing district administrators for mentoring and guidance.

Potential superintendents are introduced to the profession through a variety of publications, professional development offerings, and networking opportunities. The program addresses the following issues:

  • What superintendents do
  • What it takes to be an effective superintendent and how to know if you are ready
  • What school boards are looking for
  • How the search process unfolds
  • How school boards and candidates work with search consultants
  • Connecting aspiring district administrators with an active network of other future leaders and practicing district administrators for mentoring and guidance
  • Job search, interview strategies, and tips
  • The transition to the Superintendency
  • Finding the district that is the right fit for you
