Editor’s Note

Dear Colleagues,

The AASA New Superintendents E-Journal is a quarterly publication tailored to the needs of new superintendents. Each edition generally includes three articles prepared by new and seasoned superintendents, educational leadership professors, consultants, and practicing school administrators. This edition of the journal includes articles addressing the transient nature of the career of most superintendents, lessons learned during a long career as a superintendent, and review of a cutting-edge program dealing with social and emotional development students and staff in a school district.

Future issues of the AASA New Superintendent E-Journal will look at such topics as systems thinking, sustaining a district vision, executive compensation, and board relations. Authors interested in submitting articles are encouraged to directly contact the editor. Submissions are invited throughout the year.
