There is often a lack of preparation of new superintendents by universities and professional associations. Meanwhile, new school superintendents are so focused on getting the job that little time is spent on what it takes to be successful. What Every Rookie Superintendent Should Know lays the foundation with a systematic mind-set, strategic thinking approach, and skills sets, which not only help the rookie survive, but decreases the learning-curve time. This book features a conversational approach between the rookie superintendent and the sage mentor and highlights real-life situations and survival strategies. The mentor provides time-tested building blocks upon which the rookie can build a strong 1st-year foundation. The mission is to improve learning for all students by pulling an organization out of chaos and creating a well-functioning school district.

Industry Reviews

Dr. Reeves brings a refreshing story that should be mandatory reading for all superintendents, new and old. In a time where school superintendents turn over every couple of years, it's time to listen to someone that over twenty-five years built a small urban, suburban, and rural district into some of the truly great ones.--William Tudor, CEO of Parent Tutor Corporation and founder of EdVISION Corporation
