Nine Elementary Schools transition from state Literacy Support.
Mentoring. You hear a lot about it these days, but what does it really mean?
At MASS, mentoring is directly tied to the success of public education now and for years to come. That’s why we are excited to share news about the recent launch of a forward-thinking initiative aimed at equipping new superintendents across our state.
Leading the way as mentors are 22 experienced superintendents. Mentees include 16 new superintendents, four practicing superintendents, and two building administrators.
Providing the training are our partners at Millsaps College’s Else School of Management, one of the premier business schools in the Southeast.
For a view of this spirited process, take a minute to view the adjacent video, featuring superintendent John-Mark Cain of the Lauderdale County School District.
I think you will agree that the future of our profession is bright.
