A Professional Learning Community for Superintendents and District Leaders

About DMCouncil

An essential resource for superintendents and school district leaders

In 2004, DMCouncil was created out of a belief that superintendents and district leaders need a greater level of support to tackle the enormously important work with which they are charged. Responsible for educating our nation’s students, superintendents and school district leaders hold the future of our society, our nation, our world in their hands. To be successful, district leaders must not only be great educators but must also be great leaders and managers.

DMCouncil Membership helps superintendents and district leadership teams strengthen leadership and management capacity to solve complex school district challenges.

As a DMCouncil Member, superintendents and their leadership teams have access to DMGroup’s best practice research, advice, and professional development. And, as a member, district and school leaders join a community of forward-thinking peers committed to achieving measurable, sustainable results for students. DMCouncil Members learn together at our in-person and virtual convening, share ideas, and support each other in their challenging and all-important work.

Our members describe DMCouncil as an essential resource for their professional growth.


I use a lot of the resources that DMCouncil provides as part of our own work in the district with our Administrative Council, developing our strategic plan, even with the Board of Education and the broader community. These resources have become integral in our work as a system.

Dr. Christine Carver, Superintendent Bethel Public Schools (CT)

I love the fact that I feel like I could call anybody on the DMCouncil staff at any time and check into our work or to toss an idea their way and get some collaboration regarding that.

Dr. Dana West, Former Superintendent Amarillo Independent School District (TX)

The quality of programming and the information presented sets DMCouncil apart from any of the conferences I attend.

Dr. Lawrence Mussoline, Superintendent Haddonfield Public Schools (NJ)
