Innivee Strategies is partnering with the Georgia Department of Education to search for the next AASD Superintendent. Over the past few weeks, Innivee Strategies has distributed a survey and hosted several focus groups with AASD community members to learn about the characteristics that they wish to see in the AASD Superintendent leader profile. This desired leader profile will be a key document that guides the screening and interview process.

If you have questions about the search process or if you have recommendations for AASD Superintendent candidates, please contact Innivee Strategies at [email protected].

Thank you to community members for a great turnout in responses on the survey. Keep an eye on AASD emails and social media for more information soon.
