Since 1984, TASB's Superintendent of the Year (SOTY) Program has honored outstanding Texas administrators for achievement and excellence in public school administration.
Candidates are chosen for their strong leadership skills, dedication to improving the quality of education in their school districts, commitment to public support and involvement in education, and ability to build good employee relations among teachers and staff members.
New for 2017: The SOTY nomination process has been streamlined. Rather than a 12-page entry with 10 topics, the entry for 2017 is capped at five pages and should be sent as a letter of recommendation from the school board president to the ESC. One addition to the criteria is that a superintendent must be certified. Entries, which must be completed by the school board and signed by the school board president, are due May 15. Get the details.
