MASA’s Great Start Cohort for New Superintendents

MASA is committed to providing excellent professional development that will support you in your professional practice. As a member of the Great Start Cohort (GSC), you will have the opportunity to meet other new leaders, receive information from seasoned leaders, and develop practical skills designed to help you be successful in the first year of your new position. In addition to the five traditional workshops (linked to statewide conferences for travel and schedule ease), participants will also receive access to the GSC Online Toolbox and mobile app filled with supporting documents and videos on popular topics. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be granted for each session in the series. Whether you are an experienced administrator or are new to your leadership role, this workshop series is a wonderful opportunity to network with your colleagues and enhance your skills.
