Nation’s First-Ever Class Of School System Leaders Completes AASA’s Personalized Learning Cohort And Certification Program


Alexandria, Va. – May 10, 2017 – As an increasing number of school districts nationwide are leveraging personalized learning environments in their classrooms, AASA, The School Superintendents Association, announced today the first-ever class of school system leaders that successfully concluded the organization’s Personalized Learning Cohort and Certification Program.

AASA, the nation’s premier organization for the school system leadership, recently honored the 2017 class of superintendents to complete the ground-breaking program that is spreading the personalized learning movement in our schools and communities.

“We are proud to recognize the visionary leaders who have created a positive culture of personalized learning in their school systems,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “This inaugural class represents a first step in building a national collaborative to raise the level of personalization in education to reach every single child. Not all children learn at the same rate. Personalized learning will enable them to learn at their own pace.”   

The program kickoff took place in Park City, Utah in October 2015 and concluded in Fairfax, Va. in March 2017. The cohort also met in Salt Lake City, Utah and Vista, Calif. These meetings included visits to schools in order for participants to view first-hand personalized learning in action. To complete the program, each participant had a choice of:

  • An “ignite” session and discussion with a presentation archived.
  • Publication of an article or series of blogs related to the work they are doing in their district.
  • Action research related to their district efforts with personalized learning and student learning.
