Prospective Superintendent Program
The Prospective Superintendents Academy is a year long program designed to prepare potential candidates for superintendent's positions in Tennessee's public schools. The program will provide intensive in-depth preparation for the challenging job of being a public school superintendent. The Tennessee School Boards Association and the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents will operate the program in partnership with the Niswonger Foundation of Greenville, Tennessee.
Primary support for the Academy will come from fees paid by each candidate and from the Niswonger Foundation. Candidates will also be responsible for their own travel, lodging, meals and incidental expenses to attend the Academy. Candidates who are currently Tennessee educators and are recommended by their employing school will be given preference, but anyone may apply for admission. Local boards recommending employees will authorize release time for any employees who are selected.
