“The program is designed to support the growth, expansion and enhancement of superintendents, using the North Carolina Superintendents Standards, through a formative process that advances the stated purposes of the North Carolina Evaluation process,” said Jack Hoke, program coordinator and executive Director for the North Carolina School Superintendents Association.

The year-long program was comprised of six face-to- face sessions that guided superintendents as they reflected on and improved upon their effectiveness as district leaders; focused on their personal leadership goals and linked personal goals with district and state goals; and guided and facilitated the professional development of superintendents toward advanced levels of executive leadership as defined by the North Carolina Standards for Superintendents.

“Dr. Hill developed a strong network of superintendents to consult with, and he contributed to the discussions on emerging issues and innovative practices occurring in the Bertie County Schools,” Hoke said.

“The program was dynamic, powerful, engaging and challenging,” said Hill. “As educators, it is a simple task to identify the challenges we all face in public education; but it is a far more difficult task to identify solutions to those challenges.

“Through collaboration and support from the people involved in the Next Generation Superintendent Development Program Cohort IV, we have been able to identify possible solutions,” Hill concluded.
