Superintendent of the Year

 

This award is presented annually to a district superintendent, as part of the national Superintendent of the Year program of the American Association of School Administrators (AASA). SCASA participates in this program, but South Carolina procedures differ somewhat from the national process.

State nominations come directly to SCASA. The SCASA Superintendents Awards Committee reviews the applications and selects finalists. Those candidates are then interviewed by a team of educator and community leaders.  Scores are compiled from the two teams of committees and the winner is announced in early May.

The South Carolina Superintendent of the Year Award is honored throughout the following school year.

The 2020 application is due on or before Friday, April 2, 2019. The application must be emailed to april@scasa.org. Applicants may self-nominate; however, if you wish to nominate a superintendent, the following information must be submitted, via email at april@scasa.org, between February 25th and March 4th: 

  1. Candidate's name and school district 
  2. Number of years in the current school district
