Navigate difficult situations through sample cases and tips for action

Lead with an eye on global impacts by illuminating education abroad

Understand the Common Core standards as explained by fellow superintendents

Explore instructional coaching and rounds as professional learning opportunities

"This remarkable book for new as well as veteran superintendents is thoroughly researched, practical, and compelling. If I could have but one book on my shelf to support the all-encompassing work we do, The Superintendent′s Fieldbook would be the one."

—Suzanne Cusick, Superintendent

Longview School District, WA

"I′ve found most guides for superintendents to be long on theory and short on practical advice. The Superintendent′s Fieldbook doesn′t make that mistake. This is where school leaders and aspiring superintendents can learn how to survive on the job, bargain like a pro, engage with the public, and work with their boards while tackling the achievement gap and explaining to the public what′s right with American schools."

—Gloria J. Davis, Superintendent

Decatur Public Schools, Decatur, IL
