Each year, Education Week searches for some of the most influential, inspiring, and innovative district-level leaders in the United States. In the 2016 edition, we profile 13 leaders—many of whom have worked well below the public radar—to bring attention to the smart ideas and strategies they are using in their school systems to raise student achievement and build stronger communities. ____________________
