The Superintendent as CEO is unique; it is both the core, how-to professional book for superintendents and it supports the very popular movement of training superintendents to have an executive / CEO mentality that complements their educational background. It has a strong research base and it accommodates the ELCC standards required for educational administration programmes to get or retain certification, while also following the AASA Professional Standards for the Superintendency (K-12.)

"Professors, workshop facilitators, school administration students, and superintendents will find the content and authors' insights to be highly relevant and enlightening." -- Theodore J. Kowalski, Kuntz Family Chair in Educational Administration
"Educational leadership faculty members across the country are engaging in large-scale renovation of their leadership preparation programs. This book represents an important contemporary effort to provide direction to the construction of a text-anchored curriculum for the preparation of superintendents." -- Michelle Young, Executive Director
"John Hoyle and his co-authors have done the impossible--they have produced a textbook on the superintendency that is both research based and readable. They have also bridged the gap between the world of those who believe everything is measurable and those who see leadership as spiritual and learning as a work in progress. This is a major addition to the field of educating school system leaders." -- Paul Houston, Executive Director
"Blending theory and practical applications, this book is a must read for those aspiring to or currently in leadership roles in school districts. Unlike texts on the superintendency that are written solely from standards-based or constructivist perspectives, this book draws on multiple approaches in exploring the complexities and changing demands of the superintendent's role." -- Martha McCarthy, Chancellor's Professor
