Kenneth S. Burnley, the superintendent of Colorado Springs School District No. 11, has been named Superintendent of the Year by the American Association of School Administrators.

Mr. Burnley, who administers a district with 55 schools and 30,000 students, received the honor at the association's annual meeting this month.

The group cited the superintendent for introducing a number of reforms, including a program that allows students to complete a year's work in one semester and a high school engineering program that combines mathematics, science, and technology.

Mr. Burnley receives a gold medallion, a $2,000 U.S. Savings Bond, and a $10,000 scholarship to present to a student from his high school alma mater.
