Yukon Superintendent W. Jason Simeroth was among nearly 20 superintendents from across the country recognized recently for successfully completing the AASA National Superintendent Certification Program®.

The program, administered by AASA, The School Superintendents Association, is a collaborative effort with AASA state affiliates, the National School Boards Association, and business and corporate leaders. The master teachers and guest instructors have all been sitting superintendents and have demonstrable track records of success, according to a news release.

“AASA’s National Superintendent Certification Program® is one of the best professional development experiences I’ve ever had as an educator,” Simeroth said. “Given the uncertainty of today and the challenges of tomorrow, I felt the program was so invaluable because it provided me with ample opportunities to work with like-minded peers from across the country, from Alaska to Texas, who challenged each other to improve."
