Region 6 superintendent Edward Drapp
Region 6 Superintendent of Schools Edward Drapp will be off to a warmer climate in two weeks when he travels to San Diego, Calif., for the American Association of School Administrators annual conference.
Drapp is one of 30 school superintendents chosen by AASA to participate in an 18-month training program that will begin during the conference. The program helps superintendents improve their management skills.
Drapp, Region 6's superintendent for four-and-a-half years, was one of hundreds of school superintendents who applied for the training program, according to the AASA, which said the quality of Drapp’s application and his professional experience clinched his acceptance.
In a statement Thursday, Drapp said he is thrilled and humbled to be accepted by the program and looks forward to working with superintendent colleagues from around the country.
“This specialized training will allow me to expand my skills and leadership within Region 6, and I am grateful to the school board for their support of my participation,” Drapp said.
The Region 6 Board of Education will cover the program's $6,000 tuition cost, according to its chairman, Christopher Sanders of Goshen.
