Empowering new superintendents to accelerate student learning through strategic leadership
As the district’s leader, each Massachusetts superintendent has the opportunity and responsibility to work through school principals and others to improve academic, social and emotional outcomes for all youth. The three-year New Superintendent Induction Program (NSIP) provides a firm foundation for new superintendents to do so with greater skill, savvy and success. NSIP is a collaboration between the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (MASS). By teaching replicable best practices, providing expert coaching that goes well beyond mentoring, and offering multiple opportunities for deep collaboration with peers, NSIP helps superintendents sharpen their focus on teaching and learning, transform their visions into positive student outcomes, and become successful instructional leaders capable of promoting substantive and realistic change at the school level.
