Texas Nominee for National Superintendent of the Year

 

Paying Tribute to the Talent & Vision of School Leaders

To be eligible for AASA’s National Superintendent of the Year awards program, a Texas superintendent must first be selected by TASA as Texas’ nominee. TASA traditionally nominates the superintendent who is awarded that year’s Texas Superintendent of the Year honors by the Texas Association of School Boards.

2019 Texas Nominee Honored as Finalist

Northside ISD Superintendent Dr. Brian T. Woods was not only chosen as Texas’ nominee for 2019 National Superintendent of the Year®, an award given by AASA, The School Superintendents Association; he was selected by AASA as one of only four finalists from across the U.S.! AASA honored Woods in February 2019 at the AASA National Conference on Education.

 

Eligibility & Selection Process

Any AASA Affiliate Association State Superintendent of the Year® who plans to continue in the profession may be nominated for AASA National Superintendent of the Year, which recognizes the outstanding leadership of active, front-line superintendents. It is not recognition of service at retirement or a program to reward current state or national leaders.

State Level

Each year by November 1, TASA selects a Texas superintendent to be Texas’ nominee for AASA National Superintendent of the Year. TASA traditionally nominates the superintendent who is awarded that year’s Texas Superintendent of the Year honors by the Texas Association of School Boards at the TASA/TASB Convention.

National Level

A national panel of judges selects four finalists for AASA National Superintendent of the Year from the pool of state nominees based on the written applications and letters of recommendation.

The panel interviews the four finalists in Washington D.C. to select the AASA National Superintendent of the Year, who is named during the AASA National Conference on Education.
