THE HENTON HEADLINES
May 19, 2022
Here’s the scoop for the week
Did You Know?
As of this writing, 41 legislators are not returning next year-20 in the House and 21 in the Senate. That will mean a lot of relationship building for us to do.
Long-time Educator and MASA Member Needs Kidney Transplant:
Former Minneapolis Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson shared publicly that she has stage 5 kidney disease and is in need of a kidney. More information about her illness and kidney donation can be found here.
There have now been at least 67 school districts that have had/will have leadership changes since Fall 2021. This represents the highest number of superintendent openings in the past 20 years. We have a lot of mentoring to do!
MESPA, MASSP & MASA Master Class on Principal Evaluation well-attended!
In the first attempt in recent years to bring together members from these education organizations a Master Class on principal evaluation was held with MDE staff and 93 participants! Thanks to MDE staff and all participants. If you have other topics you would like to have our education organizations offer together in a free virtual Master Class, please let me know.
I will be on vacation beginning May 23 through May 27. You can always feel free to call me, but if I am unavailable, please contact Mia Urick, MASA Director of Professional Learning, at 651-491-4557, or email@example.com. You may also contact MASA President Dan Bittman at 763-234-3299, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
