Superintendent Elected as Officer on MASS Statewide Board
The Mississippi Association of School Superintendents and the Alliance of Educational Leaders of Mississippi held their annual convention during the week of July 8 – 13. Over 980 public school administrators from across the state were in attendance.
During the convention, Dr. David Daigneault, Superintendent of the Grenada Public School District was elected by his fellow Superintendents to serve as Secretary of the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents for the 2012 – 2013 school year and he will move up to President-Elect for the 2013 – 2014 school year and will serve as President for the 2014 – 2015 school year.
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 three 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 in the difficult times of the Legislative 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. We are on a mission for our children.
