District Leadership Institute

NJASA presents the 2022-2023 District Leadership Institute - "Finding Your Leadership Compass."  The Institute is a professional learning experience designed by and for early career Superintendents; however, all Superintendents are welcome.  Participants will dive deeply into critical, challenging issues identified by the recent participants in the New Superintendents' Academy.


This program will offer supportive, practical advice from NJASA seasoned leaders and legal experts, and will include time to reflect on sound professional practice within your specific context.  Takeaways will include plans, strategies and resources.

All sessions will be virtual via Zoom.  All sessions will run from 9:15 a.m. to approximately 12:00 noon.  Zoom link and agenda will be e-mailed to registrants 48 hours prior to the session.  Be sure to click the "add" button next to your registration option and allow the item to populate into your itinerary.

Session 1 - November 3, 2022:  Traversing the Superintendency While Addressing Political Expectations.  NJASA has gathered experienced professionals from school districts throughout the state to form a panel charged with sharing strategies and guidance in avoiding "pitfalls and traps" present in working with your Board of Education.  In addition, we have asked an experienced Board Attorney to participate, who might offer somewhat of a different perspective than the Chief Education Officer.  Come learn how members of our panel "survived challenges" and continued to work in our fine profession.

Dr. Laurie Newell, Superintendent/CEO, Essex Regional ESC; NJASA 2023 Regional Superintendent of the Year.

Glenn Robbins, Superintendent/Principal, Brigantine Public School District.
