“Welcome to your new superintendency!  I very much look forward to networking with you at the COSA workshops this year and to being a mentor resource to you as you begin your new position.  There is no comparable professional support at a better value for superintendents than the COSA Superintendents Leadership Institute. - Jerry Colonna
