    #ASuperDay Mid Day Reflections from a monthly superintendent communication

    in Education

    This year, principals around the country started to use #APrincipalsDay to share/celebrate highlights of their work. New Jersey Superintendent Scott Rocco, @ScottRRocco has introduced the idea of #ASuperDay for superintendents to do the same.


    #suptchat is always held on the first Wednesday of the month.  Now, continuing with March 18th, the 3rd Wednesday is dedicated to #ASuperDay.


    All you need to do on the #ASuperDay is tweet about what you are doing throughout your day and include the hashtag #ASuperDay.  This will help us recapture the national story about the important, relevant, and powerful work that we all do on a daily basis.


    Please spread the word and tell your friends and colleagues.  Let’s get #ASuperDay trending all day on March 18th! Also use #LeadExcellence, AASA President Dave Schuler: “We must find time to transcend, dream & lead. Please share how you are doing this with #leadexcellence. Let's take back the agenda.”


    Your friends at #suptchat,

    TZP Episode 4: Extreme Superintendent/Athletes Thomas Bastis and Scott Bower

    in Environment

    In the Turfgrass Zealot Project Episode #4, host Dave Wilber chats with Extreme Super/Athletes Thomas Bastis (California Golf Club of San Francisco) and Scott Bower (Martis Camp, Truckee, CA).

    Imagine spending nine plus days biking, treking, kayaking, orienteering and scrambling over 450 miles with an hour of sleep every 24 hours. And imagine calling this fun. Thomas Bastis and Scott Bower (along with Scott's wife Susan) don't have to imagine this. They lived it. And lived to tell about it. Hear about the adventures of Team Tahoe at the 2015 Primal Quest and their adventure racing history. Oh, and did we mention these guys are A-game superintendents?

    Join Dave Wilber as he tries to drill into the heads of these two turfheads and find out what being a world class athlete, husband, dad and superintendent is all about... and making it work.

    "Pain is temporary but memories last forever..." -- Thomas Bastis, CGCS

    "I come back from these events a stronger individual... I'm a new person, mentally stronger, a better leader and a better manager of the whole operatio..." -- Scott Bower, CGCS

    Dave also lays on a little Turfgrass Zealot wisdom about nothing being permanent, fall renewal, and holding on too tight. 

    The Turfgrass Zealot Project is brought to you by Klingstone. Outstanding Bunker Performance for 15 years.

    Congratulations to our guest Dr. Philip Lanoue


    Dr. Lanoue is the Superintendent of Clarke County GA school in Athens, GA. How appropriate that the Supt of the year comes from the city named for ancient seat of learning! Besides Ed Tech, and all the wonderful things happening in the district....we'll ask if they have to wear togas to work

    Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Search

    in News

    The Montgomery County Board of Education has begun interviewing candidates to be the next superintendent for Montgomery County Public Schools. The eight-member board chose not to renew Joshua Starr's contact, Montgomery County's recently-departed superintendent who left Montgomery County earlier this year in February. 

    The school system hired the firm Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates to conduct a nationwide search. So far, the search process has been tightly sealed from the public and board members have not spoken about any of the finalists. 

    During this episode, Ryan Miner will cohost A Miner Detail with former Montgomery County Board of Education candidate Laurie Halverson. Laurie and Ryan will detail the superintendent search process and what parents, teachers, and taxpayers should expect from the search committee. 

    Join Ryan and Laurie at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 for a new episode of A Miner Detail!
