One of the most challenging roles in our current education system is that of local school superintendent. The Superintendent Professional Development Program (SPDP) prepares aspiring superintendents for bold, versatile and visionary leadership. A two-year program of study, SPDP emphasizes executive skills and knowledge a successful superintendent must possess in order to lead a district. Learning experiences are designed to foster competency in strategic leadership, school governance, community relations, and organizational leadership.
Georgia educators with three or more years’ experience as a school or system leader are encouraged to apply for the Superintendent Professional Development Program. A committee selected by GSSA will oversee the selection of twenty-five participants.
