What we do

The New Superintendents Academy (NSA) is a comprehensive leadership development program for newly-assigned Superintendents in their first superintendency. Superintendents participate in self-directed and group-based learning over a 12- to 18-month period.

Academy Format

The NSA consists of residential courses, webinars, coaching, individual stipends and a Community of Practice. The three residential courses are:

  1. NSA Orientation
  2. Leading People
  3. Leading Change

The webinars focus on current issues supporting new superintendents’ informational needs, leadership perspectives and challenges. Individual coaching sessions are grounded in OPM’s Leadership 360-degree assessment. Individual stipends are provided for superintendents to pursue training in areas identified in an Individual Development Plan. The NSA Community of Practice is a process for members to collaboratively discuss their challenges, perspectives and to share information and ideas.
