Purpose: The Superintendent Institute provides learning experiences that foster collective learning for a statewide professional learning community of superintendents.

Participants: Superintendents


Objectives are to support collective learning and collaboration, to develop and implement an action research study designed to inform a teaching and learning challenge within their district, to engage in discussions about effective practices to enlighten a system change that can affect teaching and learning performance for students and/or adults, to communicate and share knowledge and resources to support the five leadership performance strands, and to access information and coaching support from members of the support team who facilitate the learning experiences.

The Superintendent Institute features:

Whole-group focus sessions where major concepts and objectives are introduced with an opportunity for reflection and inquiry;

  • Knowledge and skill-building sessions where participants focus on practice, information, and competencies related to individual district developmental needs;
