Leadership Success

“The Center’s Superintendents’ Network is a very focused group of superintendents committed to doing the hard, swampy kind of work to improve student achievement. It requires tenacity and determination. It requires willingness to open schools, dialogue and practice to other superintendents. I have been able to replicate the work of the network in my district.”
Kathy Binkowski, Retired Superintendent, Plainville School System, Superintendents’ Network

“It is the best professional development I have ever had. I have come to appreciate the focus on teaching and learning. As a superintendent it’s easy to move farther and farther away from that. We participate in site visits to bring us back in to each other’s districts. We work together to ensure that systemic improvement gets carried forward.”
Bob Cronin, Superintendent, North Haven School System

“Personally, it has been an anchor for me in my job. It supplies me with the reason why I can’t get lost in mundane tasks. It makes my job rewarding to do this kind of critical work within the district.”
Howard J. Thiery, III, Superintendent, Regional School District 17
