AASA Urban Superintendents Academy 2023: Highlighting Growth in Education 


Knowledge and connections were at the heart of the 2023 AASA Urban Superintendents Academy, where leaders in education came together for in-depth workshops and networking. The Urban Superintendents Academy program covers important topics like leading for equity with urgency, understanding governance, and building a community of support.


Nichols Strategies provided expertise for educational administrators to navigate communications in high-profile situations, elaborating on the right steps to take to manage any school crisis successfully. The hands-on workshop included a presentation and experiential learning with real-life scenarios. Educational administrators broke out into groups of 5, strategizing a variety of common school crises like cyber-attacks, sexual misconduct, and more. Preparing statements to address the media and community in challenging situations and practicing the role of spokesperson will aid leaders in handling future crises that come their way. 


Join the next opportunity to learn and elevate in the realm of leadership in education on Oct.18 at the 2nd annual Irvin R. and Virginia A. Melbo Chair Lecture. Nichols Strategies executive leadership will be featured speakers on the topic of leading in times of radical change.
