Dan Lawson
"Clearly written and targeted to meet the needs of superintendents or those aspiring to the position. The stories, vignettes, andreflective exercises for the reader are major strengths."
Janie P. Edmonds
"Necessary readingfor the training and practice of school superintendents. The reflection, context, and application sections of each chapter assist the reader in moving from a mere intellectualagreement with the author to the implementation of the standards and ideas."
Marie Blum
"This isthe first professional book that I have found 'exciting' to read in a long time—I really couldn’t put it down! It was insightful and made me immediately want to gather my educational leadership team together to devise our own plan.A terrific discussion starter, as well as a step-by-step plan for implementing and assessing new programs."
Robert A. Frick
"The reflective practice segments are by far the most valuable parts of the book, because they force the reader to decide how he or she would solve the problems presented."
The Bookwatch
“Tells superintendents how to apply the ELCC standards for improved districtwide performance. Written by the past president of NCPEA, this book examines the foundations of these benchmarks, their practice and applications, and uses case study examples from real-world models to address issues of district culture, community involvement, and more.”
