Tuesday Talks
Michigan's New Superintendents are invited to join MASA Executive Director William Mayes (and friends) every-other Tuesday morning from 7:30-8:30 for a live audio chat.

Michigan’s newest superintendents can “get together” twice a month over morning coffee to:

  • Catch up with peers
  • Hear the latest news from Lansing
  • Discuss current issues
  • Share what’s working…and
  • what’s not.

All this takes place in a safe, confidential forum designed with your convenience in mind.  Call from your car, or log in at your computer…whatever best fits your day. 

Induction Toolkit
Information helpful to linking new superintendents and mentors with the tools it takes to be successful
