Permeating the Culture of a State Association
Reeves, Pat
School Administrator, v66 n6 p34-35 Jun 2009
In the four years since Courageous Journey was launched, the impact has permeated the Michigan Association of School Administrators (MASA). Already, 16 of 47 council and executive board members have joined a cohort. The Courageous Journey's Seven Points of Learning (or seven major superintendent responsibilities) help frame the organization's professional development and leadership work and influence the themes for state conferences. At its conference in January, MASA rolled out a "share-casing" format with poster and breakout sessions featuring systemic change and improvement work involving Courageous Journey participants. These changes are outward signs of a major cultural shift in the state association. While members still value professional networking, shaping legislation and policy, advocating for students and staying current on timely issues, they demonstrate a growing appreciation for building a shared practice as school district leaders.
