The Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP) speaks for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals, supervisors, and other administrators throughout Missouri. We understand the obstacles that administrators like you face every hour of every day. We’re working harder and faster than ever before to give you practical, peer-tested solutions to these daily challenges.
In an education climate of greater demands and fewer resources, Missouri’s secondary school administrators must be heard. MASSP provides you with the inspiration and support to guide improvements in your school and a strong voice to reach your state and national administrators, legislators, and media. With the help of an experienced team of lobbyists, MASSP communicates directly with legislators in Jefferson City to enhance education policy and ensure the success of Missouri schools.
Whether you’re a new or veteran administrator, you can make a difference for your school, for your state, for our nation. If you want to change legislators’ minds about what’s really happening and what’s really needed in education, join the MASSP/NASSP team today. There’s power in numbers—and we’re growing every day. From the classroom to the statehouse to Capitol Hill, we are changing minds where it really counts.
