Here’s the scoop for the week

Which Challenges are MASA Members Finding Most Difficult to Solve?

  • Staffing special education openings
  • Staffing math openings
  • Staffing science openings
  • Staffing FACS openings
  • Staffing media center openings
  • Staffing business openings
  • Staffing school psychologist openings
  • Staffing SLP openings
  • Staffing education support professional openings
  • Staffing custodial openings
  • Staffing mental health openings
  • Staffing business/finance office openings
  • Staffing bus driver openings
  • Staffing food service openings
  • Staffing substitute openings
  • Staffing social worker openings

Clearly, there is a pattern in both the metro and greater MN that is causing a great deal of justifiable frustration, and that is resulting in increased competition between school districts to hire and retain staff. 

If you have suggestions for how we can solve the staffing shortages,  please don’t hesitate to contact me. I know of other members willing to come together to find meaningful solutions. 

Which Successes are MASA Members Finding Most Wonderful to Celebrate?

Most of our members will attend one or two (or more) graduations this time of year, and many of our members will have the honor of handing their graduates their diplomas. It is wonderful to see graduates launched into all of the possibilities of their futures and know that the wisdom, skill, commitment, and resilience of our educators had a significant role in getting them there. Congratulations to our graduates, and to our members for the success of the Class of 2022!
