First-Year Superintendent Support Program


This year-long support program for first-year superintendents will provide a variety of learning opportunities, while also providing a network to enhance your performance as a district leader.  Invoices for any of these components will not be sent until after July 1, 2020.


The MASA First-Year Superintendent Support Program consists of two major components:



MASA Administrator Mentoring Program (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 may choose to participate in this program; however, if you have never served as a principal, you should access a mentor through DESE’s K-8 Principal/Superintendent mentoring program.  Read more .....
