Registration is now open for the 2019-20 New Superintendents Leadership Academy!
Your first few years as a superintendent require enormous growth as a leader. The New Superintendents Leadership Academy was created to support superintendents who are new to the position, as well as superintendents who want to continue to grow and build new strengths in this tough but rewarding job.
The New Superintendents Leadership Academy offers six in-depth sessions throughout the year to give you the skills and insight to excel as a superintendent. These sessions bring together experts who have one goal: Preparing you to succeed as a superintendent.
All MASA members who register for the full series will have a mentor coach throughout the year.
The day-long sessions focus on:
- August 8, 2019: Character and Healthy Organizations
- Participants who sign up for the entire series are invited to a “first pitch” event – a reception followed by a Lansing Lugnuts baseball game
- August 9, 2019: Finance, Facilities, and the How-To of Bond Elections
- September 17, 2019: Building Cohesive Governance Teams and Fostering Positive Relationships with Stakeholders
- November 5, 2019: Legal Issues, Legislation and Policy
- January 17, 2020: Negotiations
- April 24, 2020: Communications
The cost for the 6-session series with a mentor coach is $1400 for MASA members and $1800 for non-members. Non-members do not receive a mentor coach. For those who want to focus their development on a specific area, the cost is $300 per session for MASA members and $350 for non-members. All sessions will be held at the Michigan Education Leadership Group Building, 1001 Centennial Way in Lansing, with the exception of the September session that will be held at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Traverse City.Register
