Here’s the scoop for the week


Scrolling through Facebook this morning and what post did I see?

“Congratulations to MN Administrators for Special Education - MASE for winning the Council of Administrators of Special Education, a Division of CEC - 2022 State Unit Award for "Awards!" This award recognizes the state unit that sponsors a variety of awards at the state, national or international level.

Thank you South Plains Cooperative Director Sarah Mittlestadt for the Facebook shoutout to MASE and congratulations to our MASE colleagues!  We are delighted you received yet another award from the Council of Administrators of Special Education-your second in three years!  WOW!

The Results are In…Well Most of Them!

Now we begin to build relationships with our new school board members and representatives at the state and national level. Please reach out soon if you haven’t already! We need to ensure they know and believe we have an exceptional public education system in place worth protecting and fully funding, and that you are skilled leaders with the children at the heart of  your why.

To the school leaders whose districts prevailed in levy attempts, we congratulate you. To those who did not prevail, our hearts and minds are with you. You have laid the foundation for a possible next attempt, and no matter how much effort is involved will keep the kids at the focus of all your next steps. Let us at MASA, and your colleagues know how we may support you.

Leadership Matters:

“Leadership is a way of thinking, a way of acting and, most importantly, a way of communicating.” - Simon Sinek
