About NASS 

NASS was originally launched in 2009 to serve the unique needs and challenges faced by superintendents by leveraging its most powerful and reliable source of support, networking with other superintendents. It offered new superintendents immediate guidance and resources, while simultaneously affording their more seasoned and experienced colleagues opportunities to continue to refine their expertise as well as contribute advice and leadership to their profession.

Today, the organization is a new nonprofit undergoing its third realignment, beginning with developing an all-new resource center that will continue to grow and improve by the addition of features and opportunities for professional growth and advancement.

“The superintendency is one of the most important and meaningful professions in our country,” says Theresa Daem, Founder of the National Association of School Superintendents. “While the work can be immensely rewarding, it is also extremely demanding and subject to new pressures and mandates on a regular basis. We look forward to building a coalition of dynamic superintendents with the collective expertise truly capable of continuously advancing public education.”

“We’re honored to partner with NASS to recognize the unique, sometimes challenging work that innovative leaders have taken on in their role as superintendents,” says Christine Weiser, Content Director for Tech & Learning. “These district leaders work hard to support the professional development of their school communities. By partnering with NASS, we’re glad to offer superintendents a place where they can develop their own personal and professional growth through collaboration with their peers, as well as promote their work to our national audience.”
