Leading the Leaders

A New Superintendent’s Blueprint for Surviving Thriving

Leading the Leaders is a professional learning program that has successfully assisted first and second year  superintendents for over thirteen years. The program places participants into a yearlong cohort (North or South) and tackles the current issues faced by superintendents in four (4) workshop settings.

Each workshop is comprised of session topics based upon the California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CPSEL), delivered by experienced superintendents.

Practical topics will be included, such as:

  • You’ve Gotten the Job, Now What? The First 90 Days/First Year
  • Staying out of Court
  • Social Media and You
  • Your Unions Love You‐‐Right?
  • Leadership: Who are You? Your Budget and You
  • You are Now a Political Animal

In addition, beginning this year, ACSA will provide a one‐on‐one mentor to each participant, whose goal will be to assist each new superintendent experience success in the most demanding of public education jobs.
