Program honors students for leadership and community serviceread more→
In recent days, MASS has welcomed new board members and installed new officers for the coming year. It goes without saying that they are taking on new roles and responsibilities during one of the most challenging times in history for public schools.
School districts in Mississippi were already grappling with a variety of challenges before the pandemic, such as teacher shortages and funding issues. As communities continue to debate how to safely reopen schools in the fall, decisive leadership has never been more critical — and MASS is prepared to be a helpful resource, thanks to the commitment of our board of directors.
MASS directors are veteran leaders who have devoted their careers to improving public education. They bring a diversity of experiences in teaching, teambuilding and problem solving. They are eager to put their skills and strengths to work for MASS as we focus on ensuring that all students in Mississippi receive a world-class education.

Relevance of topic to targeted audience or theme of the conference is the primary consideration.
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.
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.
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 provides a network of professional colleagues to exchange ideas, information and advice. Communication among district leadership on key issues is critical in our profession.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
