Connecticut Superintendent of the Year - Nomination & Application Process

Nominating a Superintendent for the Connecticut Superintendent of the Year is a critical nomination since this individual will represent all Superintendents in Connecticut; therefore, Connecticut follows the rigorous standards established by AASA and CAPSS.

We have a robust pool each year which is no surprise since Connecticut has outstanding superintendents.
Your nomination must meet the following criteria:

  • Leadership for Learning – creativity in successfully meeting the needs of students in their 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 understanding of regional, national, and international issues.
  • Be an outstanding, practicing Superintendent.
  • Have at least five years of experience as a Superintendent.

As was stated earlier, your application will be read by a team of your colleagues, past Presidents of CAPSS, past Connecticut Superintendents of the Year, and one practicing superintendent from each RESC Area Group.

All categories of the application will be reviewed and contributions to the profession in Connecticut will also be considered. The goal is for the Review Team to reach a consensus on the candidate chosen to be Connecticut’s Superintendent of the Year, but if consensus cannot be reached, a vote will be taken.
