Since 1984, the Texas Association of School Boards' (TASB) Superintendent of the Year (SOTY) award program has honored outstanding Texas administrators for achievement and excellence in public school administration.
 
Candidates are chosen for the strong leadership skills, dedication to improving the quality of education in their school districts, commitment to public support and involvement in education, and ability to build good employee relations among teachers and other staff members.
 
 
For more information about this program, please visit the TASB Superintendent of the Year website.
Each nominee must meet the following criteria:
 
  • Has continuously served as superintendent of the district since September 1, 2019, or before (interim positions do not count);
  • Is a TASA member and in a district that is an “Active Member” of TASB;
  • Is certified and meets the State Board for Educator Certification continuing professional education requirement;
  • Is an active superintendent at the time of the 2022 TASA|TASB Convention.
 
 The nominating school board should complete the entry form and student performance work sheet. A letter of recommendation from the board president (no more than five pages total) should be addressed to the SOTY Selection Committee. Performance criteria is detailed in the brochure. Districts also should submit a resume (maximum of three pages) and a resolution signed by the board and provide a photo of the superintendent.


For more information about this program, please visit the TASB Superintendent of the Year website.
The education service center will coordinate the regional screening. School board members serving on the regional screening committee are from districts that do not have superintendents nominated for the award and do not have board members on the TASB State Selection Committee. Each regional screening committee will submit one nomination to the TASB State Selection Committee.
The State Selection Committee is typically composed of TASB directors appointed by the TASB president to serve on the TASB Member Services Committee. A director may not serve if the superintendent from his or her district is being considered.
