Leaders to Learn From
Seeking Innovative District Leaders
Education Week wants readers’ input for a special report profiling district leaders who have brought fresh, successful ideas to their school communities. We’re looking for superintendents who have forged new routes to higher student achievement, finance directors who have devised novel strategies to stretch district dollars, curriculum directors with effective outside-the-box methods for improving learning districtwide—people who have come up with good ideas and led the way in making them work.
Our aim is not just to recognize outstanding individuals, but to provide our readers with ideas that they or their districts can act on, or use to spark their own thinking and discussion. If you know of a district-level administrator whose approaches or innovations have brought results—in any area from academics to daily operations—we want to hear from you.
Fill out the form below or send your nomination to leaders@epe.org. Include your nominee’s full name, title, and school district, as well as your own, with your contact information.
Education Week will review readers’ nominations over the next few months, as well as those from a wide range of experts and independent observers, before selecting leaders to feature in a February 2013 pullout report.
