The ALAS Superintendents Leadership Academy (SLA) recruits and prepares Latino school system leaders to become superintendents of U.S. school districts, particularly those with high Hispanic populations. We keep the cohort size small to ensure personalized attention to a select group of rising stars. Most SLA alumni go on to advanced leadership positions. Check back for more Cohort profiles!
