Executive Superintendents

TASA members may call on our team of Executive Superintendents — highly regarded former superintendents who are experts on public school leadership. They are your “go-to” on matters related to public school leadership, career pathways, and the transformation of Texas public education. These executive superintendents serve as an extension of the TASA staff and are on hand to support TASA members in a variety of ways, with an emphasis on helping new superintendents navigate the role. As seasoned administrators, these superintendents are able to listen and provide support based on their own experiences. Learn more.
