Research and data supports the notion that the experts in creating professional development topics for principals are, in fact, other principals. Many of us have seen an emergence of teacher leadership in our buildings based on teachers helping create professional development activities for their colleagues. The very same ideas support principals leading principals as a strategy to share best practice and innovative ideas.
MASSP has moved from a professional development coordinator model to a professional development team strategy. The team is currently composed of board members and principals nominated by division presidents. All eight divisions of MASSP are represented and the Professional Development Team will meet at regular intervals throughout the year to guide projects, topics and opportunities.
