Alexandria, Va. — April 23, 2020 —  AASA, The School Superintendents Association, the nation’s premier organization representing public school district leadership, announced today the appointment of M. Ann Levett to its executive committee. Levett serves as superintendent of the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System in Savannah, Ga.

The 21-member committee represents each region of the country. The committee meets quarterly and conducts the ongoing business of the organization.

“A critical component of AASA’s mission focuses on creating a pipeline of superintendents through various professional learning experiences to prepare our students to excel in school and in later life. Ann Levett is a leader in that regard,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “I am excited to welcome Ann to the AASA family and look forward to working with her in her new role.”

A native of Savannah and a proud product of SCCPSS, Levett served as chief academic officer and deputy superintendent for the district beginning in 2013. She was named superintendent in June 2017.

“There is no better time than now to advocate for public schools and the positive roles they play in our communities for the benefit of the students they serve, especially during these unprecedented times,” said Levett. “I am honored to serve on AASA’s executive committee and look forward to representing the needs of school system leaders throughout my home state of Georgia as well as the region.”

A national voice in crisis communications, Levett served on the panel, “Social Media in School Emergency Management: Appropriate Roles of Superintendents, Admins, Staff, Parents, Board and Community” at AASA’s 2020 National Conference on Education in February. Earlier this year, SCCPSS hosted the AASA Youth Apprenticeship Superintendent Summit, a two-day gathering of superintendents and other school district leaders who gathered to share effective strategies and ideas about creating expansive pathways to career and life for our students.

Levett is scheduled to be sworn in later this month. In July, five additional superintendents from across the country will be sworn in as AASA executive committee members.
