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.
District Office leadership matters! Studies indicate that superior leadership within a school district’s office has a direct correlation to increased student achievement. GSSA’s District Office Professional Development Program is a one-year course of study designed to enhance the individual and collective leadership capacity of the district office, while supporting the superintendent’s ability to accomplish system-wide goals. Program strands include strategic leadership, change leadership, interpersonal leadership and organizational leadership.
The District Office Professional Development Program is designed for members of the superintendent’s central office staff and principals. Interested Georgia leaders are encouraged to apply for the District Office Professional Development Program. A committee selected by GSSA will oversee the selection of twenty-five participants.
