We at MASS believe that the quality of our public education system is the No. 1 factor affecting Mississippi’s future. Since 1969, MASS has been championing issues that are essential in building a world-class public education system for all Mississippians.
MASS makes sure that education has a seat at the table whenever state leaders discuss Mississippi’s future. It’s important for legislators to understand the challenges our schools deal with on a daily basis so they can provide the resources that teachers and students need to be successful.
In the adjacent video, MASS Board President Adam Pugh talks about the value that MASS brings to the education profession in Mississippi and why member participation is so critical. Whether it’s addressing the need for more funding, better teacher recruitment efforts or more robust early childhood education programs, MASS has been on the front lines in the fight for a better education system.
With that said, we will host a legislative luncheon during the MASS/Alliance Winter Conference Jan. 26-29 at the Jackson Marriott. Register today and make sure your voice is heard!

Relevance of topic to targeted audience or theme of the conference is the primary consideration.
We have spent some time working with MASS on strategic issues related to the future of our district. They are a terrific resource driven by effective leadership that is focused on getting results for its members.
MASS has played a very integral role in my career dating back to my first-year cohort. The training from then until has been a tremendous asset to me professionally. The relationships made through MASS continue to help me on a daily basis.
MASS helps the superintendents throughout the state communicate with one voice. It’s very easy to focus solely on each person’s respective district. MASS affords me the opportunity to view the educational issues through a statewide lens.
Thanks to MASS for its work to prepare leaders who inspire students to reach their fullest potential every day. That is the key to excellence in public education and it is our pleasure to be your partner.
If you are looking for a true partner who genuinely supports Mississippi school districts and administrators, I highly recommend the Mississippi Association of Schools Superintendent.
Every MASS conference provides me with relevant information about current issues that I can apply to the day-to-day experiences as a superintendent. More importantly, attending these conferences affords me an avenue to connect with a "like group" of colleagues to call, lean on, and share with as we all strive to lead educators and grow students.
MASS provides a network of professional colleagues to exchange ideas, information and advice. Communication among district leadership on key issues is critical in our profession.
As a long-time MASS member, I am excited about their commitment to keep everyone informed. Improvements to the website and social media are especially helpful.
Millsaps Executive Education is honored to support Mississippi's School Superintendents in its quest to build better leaders in Mississippi—whether they're growing our kids as leaders, strengthening their staff and faculty teams, or challenging themselves to be and do their best. Leadership is at the heart of everything that is accomplished in our schools and the communities we serve. Millsaps is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your team!
MASS has been invaluable to me. From my very first summer conference to the Superintendent's Network to current day, I have gained much knowledge, grown as a superintendent, and made friends for life. I strongly recommend getting involved with MASS.
MASS impacts my career in numerous ways but notably in the area of professional development. The opportunity to attend conferences that provide current and relevant information is paramount. Being exposed to new strategies and best practices enables me to expand my professional knowledge. This allows me to take new and innovative ideas back to my district.
MASS is one of the most detailed and thorough organizations I've had the pleasure of working with. They are true advocates for public education in Mississippi, providing members with a comprehensive set of programs and services that are nothing less than excellent.
I am thrilled to be a part of the new superintendent mentoring program sponsored by MASS. This was a vision that MASS had to utilize the expertise of experienced superintendents to grow new ones in the field, and I think it's working beautifully. Having someone who has been in the trenches that is just a phone call away is invaluable. Additionally, the value of a network of professionals to learn from and lean on is a major positive. I look forward to growing in my leadership through the program.
