New Superintendents Institute 2019-2020

The New Superintendents Institute consists of four sessions throughout the year specifically for first year superintendents or those superintendents new to New York State. Participants may opt to attend individual sessions or all workshops. Topics throughout the series include, but are not limited to:

  • developing superintendent/school board relationships,

  • finance and budget development,

  • the superintendent's role as district advocate,

  • and leadership responsibilities and ethics.

Workshops include small roundtable discussions with veteran superintendents.

The first workshop, the New Superintendents Orientation, is held in early August, prior to the start of the school year, and offers an introduction to The Council, LEAF, Inc. and the New York State Education Department. The New Superintendents Institute continues with sessions in September, November, and March. The September and March workshops are planned to coincide with The Council's annual conferences to help reduce additional time out of district.
