A dynamic, hands-on, and results oriented three-day training for "Aspiring Superintendents". A critical review of the research verifies there is a shortage of highly qualified educational leaders ready to become superintendents. As a result of eleven consecutive years of offering a one day "Highly rated" workshop for "Aspiring Superintendents", NABSE has joined with a group of highly successful superintendents and other educational leaders to present a Summer Institute for "Aspiring Superintendents." The Aspiring Superintendents Institute is designed for current Administrators only.
