Recognizing Excellence in School District Leadership
Each year, Education Week identifies some of the nation’s most exceptional school district leaders and shines a spotlight on their extraordinary impact on the success of educators and students in its Leaders To Learn From special report. We are excited to reveal two of our 2020 honorees early.
You will meet:
• A Georgia program manager who set out to make aspiring teachers feel supported and ready for their first year by getting rid of haphazard student-teaching experiences in her district.
• An Arizona technology director whose digitization of tools, forms, and back-office paperwork has freed up time for principals to do better class observations and teachers to get paid for innovative after-school programs.
These leading-edge district leaders seized on smart ideas, executed them deftly, and are seeing promising results for their students and school communities.
Education Week’s full class of 2020 Leaders To Learn From will be announced in February.
