As the visionary leader and engineer of all efforts which impact students in their building, the principal has a unique role. MASSP was created in the late 1960’s to further the growth and development of secondary school principals in Mississippi by providing them with resources and tools necessary to build leadership skills. For over 50 years, MASSP has assisted countless principals and assistant principals across the state to become better leaders in their respective schools and communities; and has been instrumental in providing information and guidance for educational enrichment and development.
Together, MASSP and NASSP provide a strong and dynamic voice for principals, promoting excellence in school leadership. While MASSP communicates directly with policy makers in Jackson, NASSP represents your interests to the U.S. Congress, the administration, and the national media. MASSP and NASSP also represent your interests on numerous state and national task forces.
