NCEE’s Superintendents Alliance is the fastest-growing superintendent network in the country.
Designed to meet the professional and career needs of America’s leading superintendents, The Alliance provides superintendents access to world-renowned experts, focused learning opportunities, and action-oriented networking with their peers. NCEE is the leading source for policy and practice ideas grounded in research on top-performing systems and leadership development, ensuring that superintendents have access to cutting-edge research and powerful networking opportunities. Our shared goal is to increase the success of superintendents and the districts they lead.
Helping Superintendents Address Today’s Challenges and Long-Term Strategic Needs
The coronavirus pandemic has caused district leaders to re-think teaching, learning, and administration—from basic issues around the health and safety of children and staff to pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, and student supports, from transportation and nutrition to the role of extracurricular activities and parent and community stakeholders. Superintendents are also challenged to lead their districts as they grapple with the lingering effects of systemic racism and inequality that is woven throughout the fabric of the American school system.
For more than three decades, NCEE has been researching top-performing education systems, identifying the common elements of those systems and translating them to the American context. This research provides important lessons for education leadership and system design during a time in history marked by risk and ambiguity.
The Alliance offers a safe, collegial support network for those who are leading their districts during an unprecedented time.
The annual professional learning fee includes access to the following benefits:
Access to a collegial network of like-minded peers leading districts across the nation with whom you can collaborate on meaningful and forward-looking topics and who can provide support as you advance in your career
