From the prestigious Harvard Urban Superintendents Program, this is a must-have book for new superintendents in large districts, aspiring superintendents, and students of education leadership. It takes readers through the profession of superintendent from entry to exit and includes information on communicating the vision, strategic planning, instructional reform, engaging the community, allocating resources, collaborating with unions and school boards, replicating success, and sustaining improvement. Bolstering each chapter is the Urban Superintendents Program's Leadership Framework, designed to aid administrators and educators in decision making and achieving equity.
