About Us

Welcome to the Maryland Association for Secondary School Principals' website.  

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 partners 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:

AXA, Balfour, Character Strong, College Board, Jostens, Lifetouch, MAESP, and VIRCO all assist in enhancing MASSP member services.
