Welcome to NASS!


     The superintendency is one of the most important and meaningful professions in our country. While the work can be immensely rewarding, it is also extremely demanding and subject to new pressures and mandates on a regular basis.

     NASS was originally launched in 2009 to serve the position’s unique needs and challenges by leveraging its most powerful and reliable source of support, networking with other superintendents.  It offered new superintendents immediate guidance and resources, while simultaneously affording their more seasoned and experienced colleagues opportunities to continue to refine their expertise as well as contribute advice and leadership to their profession.

     Today the organization is a new nonprofit undergoing its third realignment, beginning with developing an all new resource center that will continue to grow and improve and followed by the development of additional features and opportunities for professional growth and advancement.

     Please join truly dynamic superintendents from across the country in building a coalition with the collective expertise truly capable of continuously advancing public education.


  • ​Our mission is to advance the individual and collective success of school superintendents.

  • Our development, resources, services, and member benefits are all designed to meet the distinct demands and challenges of school superintendents.




  • ​NASS is rooted in the belief that the collective knowledge and expertise of superintendents is their greatest resource. 

  • NASS is committed to promoting cooperation and solidarity among all local, state and national organizations and associations serving school superintendents.
