Next Generation Superintendent Development Program

  • This program supports the professional growth and transformative capacity of superintendents using the North Carolina Standards for Superintendents through a formative process that advances the stated purposes of the North Carolina Evaluation Process. The program is designed to guide superintendents as they reflect on and improve their effectiveness as district leaders; focus the personal leadership goals of the superintendents and link personal goals with district and state goals; and guide and facilitate the professional development of superintendents toward advanced levels of executive leadership as defined by the North Carolina Standards for Superintendents. The North Carolina Alliance for School Leadership Development and the North Carolina School Superintendents’ Association will work with aligned partners to provide a year-long continuum of support. As a result of participation in this cohort, participating superintendents will:

    • Understand how to apply the content of the North Carolina Superintendent Standards and the Superintendent Support Continuum to transform learning within the school district.
    • Acquire and develop the Next Generation Executive Leadership capacity to transform the school district and the schools within the district through a process of Innovation and Adaptation.
    • Establish a superintendent network of support, collaboration and influence.
