New Superintendents Seminar Series (NSSS)
ACSA’s New Superintendents Seminar Series (NSSS) is the only professional development series that is specifically designed for the first- and second-year superintendent. The program provides participants with a cohort of “new superintendent” colleagues in a year-long program of five two-day workshops.
NSSS brings new superintendents together to tackle current issues in a confidential and supportive setting. Through a seminar format, practical topics specific to the role of superintendent are explored, examined and discussed. Experienced superintendents provide wisdom, expertise, experience and guidance to new superintendents.
If you are a new superintendent, NSSS is the cohort and professional development for you.
