Due to the uncertainty of holding a big event at the end of June MASSP is excited to announce RECON as an alternate event to bring the membership together to debrief and plan forward following this unprecedented time in our history.  As leaders, we can anticipate that education will never quite look the same and we will need to share successful practices learned to be better prepared in the future for disruptions in learning and for meeting the needs of all students.

RECON will….

  • Feature keynote speakers that will help shape this new vision of learning.
  • Include practitioner breakouts sharing best practice in terms of learning platforms, student and teacher supports, CLP schedules and resources.
  • Highlight vendors with proven products schools have successfully implemented and utilized to meet their needs.
  • Allow time for secondary school leaders to share their experiences and learn from each other's success.

Concerned you won’t be able to attend the full event?  For the first time ever,  MASSP is excited to announce that we will be offering one day conference registration options to better serve your needs and accommodate your schedule.  We are also hoping to offer a virtual option to live stream keynote speakers and facilitate a member forum discussion following the speakers.  We recognize that these unpredictable times make flexibility on our part essential and we want all MASSP members to have the opportunity to participate in this important event.
