The program includes access to experienced superintendents and other district leaders with expertise in district-level leadership. Live sessions and panel discussions are embedded in courses and/or offered as special events. Students will graduate from the program prepared for district leadership roles, including the superintendency, through targeted experiences on-site in districts and with a collection of evidence to share as part of the interviewing process.
