Superintendent Denny Wulf of the Norwalk Community School District has been named the 2014-15 Iowa Superintendent of the Year by the School Administrators of Iowa.
SAI Executive Director Dan Smith emphasized, “Denny Wulf is a leader of leaders. He has been selected by his peers to head a local superintendents group and has served on multiple Department of Education task forces. Dr. Wulf is well grounded in the use of research to drive improvements to teaching and learning, and the district is a first-year recipient of the Teacher Leadership and Compensation grant beginning this school year.” |
The Council of Chief State School Officers is seeking feedback from the public on draft standards for education leaders that aim to ensure district and school leaders are able to improve student achievement and meet new, higher expectations.
The standards detail the leadership skills and knowledge effective district and school leaders need in order to influence teaching and student learning. |
As AEA mergers have taken place, school administrators are regularly congregating with peers representing a broader geographic area. As of September 1, SAI districts will mirror current AEA regions rather than be divided by the original AEA boundaries. |
