2017 Superintendent of the Year

May 15 is the Deadline to submit your nomination for the 2017 Superintendent of the Year.

As a reminder, the process has been streamlined. Rather than a 12-page entry with 10 topics, the entry for 2017 is capped at five pages total and sent as a letter of recommendation from the school board president to Region 7 ESC. One addition to the criteria is that a superintendent must be certified.

In a letter of recommendation addressed to the SOTY Selection Committee, the school board president should cite details and examples of the superintendent’s leadership and explain why your chief administrator should be named Superintendent of the Year. The letter must be no longer than five pages. The entry also should include the Official Entry Form, Student Performance Work Sheet, school board Resolution, superintendent’s resume, and photo on a separate page. Specific topics that should be expanded on in the letter are the following:

?          Leadership, Management, and School Climate

?          School Board-Superintendent Relations

?          School Improvement and Instructional Leadership

?          Fiscal Management

?          School-Community Relations

At the end of the letter, succinctly answer the following:

Why should your chief administrator be selected as Superintendent of the Year?
