Tool: Kit for Superintendents by CoSN

This article is part of the guide: The Personalized Learning Toolkit.

When a program works for a school system, it likely has the backing of a savvy superintendent. Superintendents want to be the kind of leader who boosts their staff and faculty and their districts.The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) offers a self-assessment for superintendents to help them determine their own readiness. Then CoSN’s Empowered Superintendent Toolkit gives them the resources to become that leader who is the cornerstone of a successful digital transition.

The toolkit helps superintendents access their challenges and build and appraise a strong team—including a partner in the chief technology officer (CTO). By the numbers, the toolkit provides:

  • 5 imperatives for technology leadership;
  • 4 action steps for building a skilled technology team;
  • 10 skill areas to build and access CTOs;

In conjunction with the toolkit CoSN has prepared a series of one-pagers with tips to help superintendents and other school leaders begin to work through challenges. The topics include:
