Congratulations to Superintendent A. Russell Hughes upon being formally recognized for completion of the Chief Executive Officer Leadership Development Program (CEOLDP) during the joint meeting of the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) and the Florida School Boards Association in Tampa!
CEOLDP is a leadership development and performance compensation program that is comparable to chief executive officer development programs for corporate executive officers. The intensive program includes two phases. Phase I is a content-knowledge-skills phase which is a formalized training program that focuses on information and skill development. Phase II is a competency acquisition phase which provides a structured opportunity for participants to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in Phase I for the continuous improvement of the school district. Additionally, each participant engaged in Phase II designs and implements Learning Projects to address the improvement needs of their school district.
“The CEOLDP training is a stringent program that requires an immense time commitment and I applaud these education leaders and lifelong learners upon achieving this accomplishment,” states FADSS CEO and Florida Senator Bill Montford.
School Board Member Jason Catalano presented Superintendent Hughes with a special award certificate at the December 17, 2019 school board meeting at South Walton High School.
Walton County School District is extremely proud of our Superintendent, and of the integrity, vision and values he demonstrates as he leads our district into the future!
