Alexandria, Va. – Feb. 26, 2015 – Every 10 years, AASA, The School Superintendents Association, publishes the State of the Superintendency, a report offering a definitive look at school district leadership throughout the country. With an expected release date of early 2016, AASA will issue a mid-decade edition, which will focus on the state of women in the superintendency and the overall position of the superintendent.

“This report will be a valuable resource for school leaders, aspiring school leaders, those charged with preparing and supporting school leaders and all others who think and write about American public education,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA.

AASA members are now being asked to respond to a survey and the findings will contribute to the report, which will illustrate how the superintendency has changed over the years and how to best support women aspiring to the superintendency.
