Welcome to Maryland Association for Secondary School Principals' new website. We acknowledge our valued partner, PowerIT, for their assistance in creating and managing this page that will enable MASSP to effectively communicate with our members. MASSP celebrates 60 years of service to Maryland's Secondary School Administrators in 2013, and this new web presence will enhance our work.
MASSP is a proud affiliate of the National Association of Secondary School Principals and we join with them in serving the professional development and advocacy needs of our members. Education reform is constant, and one way for school administrators to keep pace with this shifting landscape is through professional associations. MASSP and NASSP will partner at the state and national level to ensure that our members are provided the tools to do their job effectively.
MASSP serves Maryland's administrators in Annapolis each legislative session so that emerging bills include the voice of principals. We keep members connected with initiatives emanating from MSDE and collaborate closely with MSDE personnel to ensure that administrators are both included in and informed about state education policy. MASSP also provides several high quality professional development opportunities for members each year. At the heart of effective professional development for administrators is the opportunity to network with colleagues. Indeed, though the voices of experts are important, the voices of colleagues who walk in the same shoes each and every day represent powerful tools for school reform that lasts.
MASSP values the many partnerships we have to serve our members effectively:
National Quality Products, Lifetouch, Jostens, Balfour, agileMinds, and VALIC, all assist in enhancing MASSP member services.
