FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Theresa Daem LBUSD 352X488 Reversed

Defining NASS

A commitment to continuous improvement is vital for any organization to remain valuable and relevant. Later this month the Executive Committee will be asked to review and update the association’s fundamental documents.

 

In advance of that meeting, we invite you to review a preliminary draft of association core beliefs:

 

•School superintendents are dedicated to continuously advancing their districts’ capacity to deliver the finest possible education to America’s youth.
•The role of school superintendent is among the most important, complicated, and challenging in our nation's public service sector today, and the profession's need for efficient access to resources and solutions is greater than it has ever been before.
•School superintendents welcome additional resources and opportunities to improve their skills, add to their knowledge, and enhance their ability to move their districts forward.
•Networking, collaborating, and sharing experiences are key sources of professional growth for school superintendents.
•The collective knowledge and expertise of school superintendents is an untapped resource with enormous potential.
•Identifying, chronicling, and organizing convenient access to proven innovations and programs can significantly advance school superintendents’ individual and combined success.
•Our country urgently needs educational policy planning, development and implementation that is organized, rational, well-founded, and sustainable.
•School superintendents need to be recognized as legitimate educational leaders and actively involved in short and long-term state and national policy planning and implementation.
•Organizations dedicated to providing the best possible education for every student have an ethical responsibility to appreciate, respect, and advance the efforts of other organizations that are consistent with and aligned with their own.

 

Please send your comments, suggestions and general input to tdaem@nass.us .  I look forward to your thoughts and insights.

Have a great week!
