The Northeast Superintendents’ Leadership Council is a network for superintendents, driven by superintendents. The superintendent plays a key role in promoting and effecting system-wide change related to student academic achievement and instruction. The Council is comprised of leaders from New England, New York, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, and provides a place where leaders can move beyond theory and discuss reform issues in an experiential realm.
Originally formed in response to superintendents' need to learn more about their growing language-minority populations, the council has expanded into a professional network where members explore a wide range of issues pertaining to education reform. With the support of The Education Alliance, the member superintendents set the agenda for activities and explore issues that are of current interest to them. The council uses a variety of forums to encourage leaders to share information about best practices for school improvement.
The Council publishes an annual Superintendents' Journal documenting activities at its annual Leadership Institute. The advisory committee has representatives from all 9 states/islands. We also support an active Women's Special Interest Group, comprised of approximately 50 women superintendents' from across the region.
