Text of March 12 press release.
PHILADELPHIA — Assistant Superintendent Dennis Creedon is among 16 senior-level administrators nationwide honored by Education Week this year as “Leaders to Learn From.”
Creedon, who joined the School District of Philadelphia in 1987, was recognized for his support of arts education. He will join honorees from urban, suburban and rural school districts at a special “lessons learned” forum next month in Washington, D.C.
The honorees are featured in a pullout report included in the March 5 edition of Education Week. The newspaper launched “Leaders to Learn From” last year to highlight the work of superintendents, associate superintendents and other district-level administrators who “seized on creative but practical approaches and effectively put them to work in their school districts.”
Education Week (www.edweek.org), a national newspaper covering kindergarten through 12th grade education, is published by Bethesda, Md.-based Editorial Projects in Education.
