The PA Association of School Administrator's (PASA) Aspiring to Leadership Workshops is designed to provide practical information and tools to assist those considering a future career as a district cabinet-level leader and/or superintendent.

The PASA Aspiring to Leadership Workshops provide a focused and practical lens into current cabinet level and superintendent roles and responsibilities. Mock interviews are facilitated at the Central Office Workshop to help candidates hone their skills. Anyone who aspires to these positions should attend. Experienced and effective cabinet level leaders, superintendents and other educational leaders facilitate the sessions. These workshops continue to receive outstanding reviews.
