The American Association of School Administrators (AASA) offers MASA members several ways to contribute information from your school district to the AASA publications. Their editor, Jay Goldman, invites you to consider the following:
(1) Your humorous anecdotes.
Their monthly magazine, School Administrator, seeks short, humorous anecdotes (that generally can be told in no more than four or five paragraphs) that relate to some telling aspect of life in educational administration or the day-to-day work in a school district (including school communications). Anecdotes should be based on the contributor's own experience -- something you’ve seen or heard or that’s been shared by a colleague. These appear in our back-page humor column called "Leadership Lite." Submit your stories (or those shared by colleagues) to email@example.com. Let us know if want to see sample Leadership Lite pages from past issues.
(2) Magazine’s upcoming editorial themes.
School Administrator relies on editorial contributions from school district administrators for articles and columns. Our newly revised author guidelines are accessible at http://aasa.org/AuthorGuidelineMagazine.aspx. The editorial themes during the second half of 2012-13 will be: (1) teacher evaluation and data use for better learning; (2) inclusion, autism and other aspects of special education; (3) the flipped classroom and personalized learning; (4) online coursework and virtual schooling; (5) vocational-technical education and career academies; and (6) dropout prevention and credit recovery. Submissions or query letters on these and other relevant subjects are welcome. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
(3) Touting a school district success.
AASA Connect, a new website dedicated to public school success stories, welcomes short submissions from school districts about an effective program or practice that would benefit other school districts around the nation. Send your ideas to Sasha Pudelski (email@example.com) who oversees AASA Connect, or use the online form at http://www.aasaconnect.com/Success-Story-Submission-Form.
