Alexandria, Va. – Oct. 5, 2016 – AASA, The School Superintendents Association, is pleased to announce the outstanding education leaders who will comprise the finalists for the organization’s 2017 Women in School Leadership Awards. The finalists represent the states of Alabama, California, Georgia, Michigan and Virginia. 

The awards continue a longstanding tradition of AASA honoring exceptional female superintendents, district level administrators and principals whose talent, creativity and vision are exemplary. Earlier this year, AASA announced a new category—the School Based Award—that recognizes the leadership skills of talented teachers, coaches and other school-based employees seeking leadership positions. 

Co-sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the awards are designed to recognize exceptional leadership of active, front-line female administrators who are making a difference in the lives of students every day and to pay tribute to the talent, creativity and vision of outstanding women educational administrators in the nation’s public schools.

“The Women in School Leadership Awards program serves as a vehicle for public education to support more women educators in developing their leadership skills and advancing their careers,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “We are pleased to partner with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on this initiative, which is aimed to bring more women into leadership positions. We congratulate our finalists for their commitment to excellence and tireless work to raise student achievement.”
