Small School Superintendents,
Do you ever wonder who to turn to with a situation you’ve never encountered, a problem that won’t go away or a plan you’d like to run by a neutral party?
OSSA has a Superintendent Mentor Program as a resource for every member superintendent. Below is a spreadsheet listing capable, experienced small district superintendents who have experience in the areas you may need to learn more about. While originally conceived as a service for new superintendents, this compendium of peers who have “been through the fire” may be helpful to any superintendent, providing a helpful, impartial and patient ear for your problems with real life suggestions of what works and what doesn’t.
Take a look at the list the next time you’re puzzled about how to approach a situation; then call another superintendent, close-by or across the state, who is a mentor in that area of expertise.
