The SCSSA is committed to promoting the superintendency as a career goal and helping those that aspire to the position. This commitment, coupled with the success of the Association’s professional development collaborative with SCOPE, Shaping the Future, resulted in the creation of this professional development program for those holding NYS School District Leader (SDL) certification, Shaping Aspiring District Leaders. Through this program, working school district administrators, nominated by their Superintendent of Schools, will earn 15 professional development hours from SCOPE, an SED approved CTLE provider, by attending five, three hour seminars led by teams of superintendents. All of the sessions will be held at the SCOPE Operations Center (100 Lawrence Avenue, Smithtown, NY, 11787). These sessions are scheduled from 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM with dinner available from 5 PM on.
