Future Superintendents Academy
The 2020-2021 Brochure and Application are now available.
To ensure a strong continuum of school leaders, The Leadership for Educational Achievement Foundation, Inc. (LEAF), NYSIR and Capital Region BOCES offer the Future Superintendents Academy, a comprehensive program to prepare high level administrators aspiring to become superintendents in the next few years.
The Future Superintendents Academy requires a year-long commitment. Participants are required to attend a summer institute and eight weekend sessions throughout the year. The program includes critical topics relevant to the superintendency such as communications; change, systems and planning; governance; financial leadership; human resources; instructional leadership; and the search and interview process.
Courses are taught by LEAF’s cadre of highly experienced faculty, most of whom are, or have been, superintendents themselves. The 2020-21 program will be facilitated by two former superintendents, Mrs. Mary Alice Price and Dr. Douglas Huntley, who assist with projects and coach Fellows throughout the year.
This is a unique opportunity. Approximately 30% of program graduates have accepted superintendencies in New York State since the program's inception. Each year, a select number of candidates are accepted into the program.
