“AASA has been serving as the voice for school district leaders for 150 years,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “We are helping superintendents set the pace for the way children learn and what they will achieve later in life. As we applaud public school leaders everywhere for the tremendous work they do, we are looking forward to this milestone in an effort to set a positive educational framework for generations to come.”

For the first time, superintendents will be recognized for completing the prestigious National Superintendent Certification program. Launched in 2013, the educational leadership program focuses on sharpening the skills that successful superintendents acknowledge are needed to thrive on the job.
