Welcome to the Jungle: The First 100 Days of a Superintendency
Stellar, Art
School Administrator, v68 n10 p28-33 Nov 2011
Presidents, governors and mayors are often publicly assessed on what they accomplish in their first 100 days in office. This is a traditional measuring stick for public officials. Starting off on the right foot also is viewed as a factor in how superintendents are remembered or whether there will be sufficient reasons for being remembered at all. In this article, the author, who has served as a superintendent for 25 years in seven school districts, discusses how one should prepare for the first 100 days. A well-planned superintendent transition raises the chances of extended tenure, positive accomplishments and a sense of well-being for everyone, including the new superintendent.
