Dr. David Daigneault, Superintendent of the Grenada School District, was recently elected by his fellow Superintendents to serve on the Board of Directors for the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents for the 2010 – 2011 and 2011 – 2012 school years.

The Mississippi Association of School Superintendents (MASS) was organized in 1969. There are 152 school districts in Mississippi with 64 elected Superintendents and 88 appointed Superintendents, all of which are eligible for membership in MASS.

If a superintendent is a member of MASS, then all the other administrators in that school district automatically become members of our affiliate organization called the Alliance of Educational Leaders of Mississippi (The Alliance) at no additional costs. There are approximately 2400 administrators, in addition to Superintendents, throughout Mississippi.

This year MASS celebrates forty-one years of being the Voice of Education in Mississippi. The continuous effort of working with legislators and state leaders has given our Association an opportunity to influence many legislative issues before they become law. The MASS/Alliance coalition, in cooperation with other professional educational organizations, continues to be a strong supporter for public education funding in the difficult times of the Legislative Budget process.

The leadership of MASS/Alliance believes that every individual public school educator in this state has an obligation to provide a safe environment for our children and then to make sure that each child receives an appropriate education to function effectively in our complex society.
