2020 Annual Spring Administrators' Conference:  20/20 Vision: Leading with Passion and Purpose

Take time to invest in yourself! Join your secondary school colleagues from Maryland and Delaware to expand your knowledge-base, share best practices, and network with other school administrators.  By returning to Ocean City, Maryland, MASSP is able to reduce costs and hire several engaging, nationally known speakers. It’s a new decade-- focus on leading your school with passion, purpose and 20/20 Vision! 

Nationally known speaker, author, and leadership coach, Jimmy Casas will open the meeting with passion, enthusiasm, and information that engages audience members and excites school leaders.  Currently, Jimmy serves as an adjunct professor at Drake University, teaching a graduate course on Educational Leadership.  Jimmy served fourteen years as a high school principal in Iowa.  Under Jimmy's leadership, the high school at which he was principal, was named one of the best high schools in the country by Newsweek and US News and World Report.  Jimmy Casas was named the 2012 Iowa Principal of the Year and was selected as one of three finalists for the NASSP 2013 National Principalof the Year.  Jimmy is the author of four books: What Connected Educators Do Differently, Start. Right. Now - Teach and Lead for Excellence, Culturize - Every Student. Every Day. Whatever it Takes, and Stop. Right. Now - 39 Stops to Making Schools Better.  Please feel free to look at Jimmy's website at jimmycasas.com.

On Friday and Saturday morning, attendees will hear from both national experts and local colleagues.  Proposals (Request for Proposal application attached) for conference presentations will be accepted until January 31, 2020.  In the afternoon, MASSP will recognize the Maryland Middle School and High School Principals of the Year at an awards luncheon.
