The MASA Foundation is Proud to Sponsor:


The Professional Assistance Program (P.A.T.)

District administrators today often face daunting situations and tough decisions with limited resources for effective support and coaching. The Foundation believes the 2015pat logo P.A.T program directly supports its mission of leadership development and individual support by meeting the immediate need of MASA members to confidentially discuss issues, seek advice, and receive valuable coaching from experienced and trusted MASA colleagues.


MASA Mentor/Mentee Program

Supporting the success of our newest leaders is an important mission for the Foundation. The MASA Mentor/Mentee Program pairs first-year superintendents with experienced leaders in order to enhance the practice of the new administrator through guidance and coaching, networking, training, and social support. The program is sponsored on a regional basis and funds support the expenses inherent in meetings, materials, and travel.
