The MASA First-Year Superintendent Support Program consists of two major components:
MASA Administrator Mentoring (AMP) (Cost = $300)
The MASA Mentoring Committee will pair first-year, K-12 superintendents with a mentor for the school year. This program includes 10 hours of face-to-face contact with your mentor. As part of the process to upgrade your initial certification, this program fulfills the mentoring requirement for DESE. New K-8 superintendents that have never served as a principal should access a mentor through DESE’s Regional MO Leadership Development Program (MLDS) specialist. In that case, MASA will be in contact with DESE to help coordinate your K-8 Superintendent / Principal mentor. Read more .....
