What is Leadership HSSD?

To help build capacity throughout our school community, Howard-Suamico Education Foundation (HSEF) is sponsoring Leadership HSSD, co-chaired by HSEF President, Brian Stuelpner, and Howard-Suamico School District (HSSD) Superintendent, Damian LaCroix


Simply put, "A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential" (Brené Brown). Leadership HSSD is a program designed to provide select community members the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of our district’s mission and strategic priorities. 

The program is especially beneficial for those who want to obtain a foundational understanding in district operations, leadership principles, governance, and become more active participants in our schools. 

Participants are asked to commit to completing the full nine-month program.
