Inspiring students to their fullest potential


Thanks to everyone who made it a priority to attend the MASS/Alliance Winter Conference in January. We regret that the winter storm prevented some of our members from attending, especially in north Mississippi. But those who were able to safely drive to Jackson experienced an informative event and outstanding opportunities for professional and personal networking.

Having a strong turnout also made a positive impression on state leaders and legislators who made time in their schedules to attend. With many education-related bills on the legislative docket this session, we want them to know the issues that are top-of-mind for MASS and what they can do to strengthen public education in Mississippi.

We also appreciate our conference sponsors whose generosity made it possible to present a top-tier event for Mississippi’s education community.

For every conference, we do our best to present enlightening forums, speakers and sessions that help us carry out our mission more effectively. In January, our agenda covered topics ranging from school safety, crisis communications and cybersecurity to family engagement, arts education and financial planning.

There was even a session on using artificial intelligence in school districts, a topic we plan to expand on during our Summer Conference July 6-10 at Beau Rivage in Biloxi. Please make plans to attend—you won't be disappointed!
