A Helpful Tip and an Inspirational Quote

   Cap's Corner 
     By James Capolupo

TIP:  You are probably like me and have pictures of your family and pet on your desk. Remember that the reason we work is for our family. Don't ever get this concept backwards. At the end of your career, you will only get a retirement dinner and a gift. What your family will say about you is worth much more.

QUOTE: "Find a balance in your life; you will regret this later if you don't." ~ James Capolupo

Introduction to PROJECT LEAD


PROJECT LEAD is a grassroots superintendents' campaign to lead the way to organized, rational, well-founded and effective long-range policy development.


1. Educate the public to restore confidence in our nation’s schools and their leadership.

It's time for superintendents to use their voices. They are high-profile public officials with access to audiences in every community in America.  They must get the facts and make them known.

2. Cultivate key roles for superintendents in state and national policy decisions.

It's also time for superintendents to own their status. They are our country's authentic front-line educational leaders and they must make it clear that legitimate reform requires their input.
