The Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA) is now seeking nominations for 2019 Pennsylvania Superintendent of the Year.

The Superintendent of the Year program, sponsored by VALIC and AASA, the School Superintendents’ Association, pays tribute to the talent and vision of the men and women who lead the nation’s public schools. This is the 31th year for the award program.

Each candidate for Superintendent of the Year will be judged on the following criteria:

Leadership for Learning – creativity in successfully meeting the needs of students in his or her school system.

Communication – strength in both personal and organizational communication.

Professionalism – constant improvement of administrative knowledge and skills, while providing professional development opportunities and motivation to others on the education team.

Community Involvement – active participation in local community activities and an understanding of regional, national, and international issues.

To be considered for National Superintendent of the Year, a Pennsylvania applicant must first be selected as Pennsylvania Superintendent of the Year by PASA.

Any Pennsylvania superintendent who plans to continue as a superintendent or I.U. Executive Director may be nominated. The program is designed to recognize the outstanding leadership of active, front-line superintendents. It is not recognition of service at retirement or a program to reward current state or national leaders.

Additional criteria for Pennsylvania nominee eligibility include the following:

  • The individual must be both a PASA and AASA member.
  • The individual must have been a superintendent for at least five years and in his/her current district in Pennsylvania for at least two years.
  • The individual must intend to continue serving as a superintendent in the year in which he/she will be the PA Superintendent of the Year.

All nominations will be accepted online only. Those seeking to nominate a superintendent must first register on the AASA website. (Self-nomination is not permitted.) AASA and PASA will notify candidates of their nomination.

The deadline for submitting formal, online nominations for the Pennsylvania Superintendent of the Year is Friday, July 27. Nomination information is available on the AASA web site at https://soy.aasa.org.

For information on how nominated candidates will submit formal applications and how the PA Superintendent of the Year will be selected and recognized, see the PASA website at https://www.pasa-net.org/soy.
