    TASA's popular Aspiring Superintendents Academy creates a learning opportunity for those who aspire to become superintendents. The session focuses on moral and aesthetic dimensions of what it means to be the top education leader in a school district and its community. Particular attention is given to developing clarity about the beliefs and values that result in distinguished leadership in a connected and digitized world. The 2018 Academy offers participants more than eight hours of professional learning in preparation for the superintendency. During the luncheon and program on Tuesday, academy participants will be provided an opportunity to network with members of TASA’s Future-Ready Superintendents Leadership Network, School Transformation Network and participants in the First-Time Superintendents Academy.
