WHAT IS PROJECT LEAD?
PROJECT LEAD is a grassroots superintendents' campaign to lead the way to organized, rational, well-founded and effective long-range policy development.
HOW DO SUPERINTENDENTS SUPPORT PROJECT LEAD?
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.
