Superintendents Leadership Council


 

In partnership with AASA, the School Superintendents Association, the Coalition for Community Schools formed Community Schools Superintendents Leadership Council in 2011 to serve as a peer support group that spotlights leaders who are deepening their efforts to implement the community school strategy district-wide. In addition we want to demonstrate to the public, policymakers, thought leaders and other superintendents across the country that community schools are a vital and effective education reform strategy.

A number of school leaders are deeply involved in initiatives to organize community schools a score element of their education reform strategy. They include: Dr. Keith Ballard, Tulsa (OK); Jesse Register, Nashville (TN); Romules Tune, Toledo (OH); Bryan McDonald, Pasadena (CA); David Smith, Evansville (IN); Antwan Wilson, Oakland (CA); Mary Ronan, Cincinnati (OH); Steven Joel, Lincoln (NE); Carole Smith, Portland (OR); Teresa Weatherall Neal, Grand Rapids (MI; among others.

These local education leaders have indicated a willingness to be part of a cadre of public champions for community schools. They will be the most influential advocates for community schools with their peers. Mobilizing superintendent leadership on behalf of community schools is particularly important now when superintendents must tap into and leverage assets from within their communities to support student learning and when community support for public education is more important than ever.
