MAASE is going virtual in 2020! We have presentations for three full days: August 10, 11, and 12. We will be using the Zoom platform.
You will notice a 15-minute break between each session on the agenda. This will allow us to end one Zoom session and open the next.
On July 8, 2020, MAASE joined MASA (Michigan Association of School Administrators) in support of the Michigan Attorney General’s filing of a lawsuit against Secretary DeVos and the US Department of Education for the inconsistent guidance around distributing CARES Act dollars to private schools. Both CASE and CEC also have long-standing positions against the use of public dollars for private schools.
The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Abby Cypher has been selected and approved to serve as the next Executive Director of MAASE.
Abby will begin her new role on July 1, 2020 and work along side the Board of Directors and Executive Associate, Sue Leach, to carry out the mission and vision of the organization.
For nearly 15 years, Ms. Cypher has been a MAASE member and actively participated and served in leadership roles. She brings a wealth of knowledge and diverse experience at the local and county level.
Abby is passionate about legislative advocacy. She cares deeply about special educators and wants to dedicate the rest of her career ensuring barriers are removed, so that the good work of supporting students can be accomplished!
