Join us for this one of a kind professional development that has been created specifically for MESPA members, by MESPA members!

Some of MESPA's best and brightest principals, in partnership with their administrative assistants, have come together to develop a training to make your school office more efficient, organized, and effective so that you can focus on the work that really matters - kids!

Both principals and secretaries will benefit from this day long training that will help you and your school office team...

  • Run a school office efficiently
  • Develop a scheduling plan and protocol
  • Go home on time and have a better work-life balance
  • Communicate and problem solve effectively as a team
  • Create a plan for more efficient organization and STAY organized
  • Empower one another and build trust
  • Proactively manage crisis response
  • And more!
The results are in: hear what past attendees are saying!
"I came in with an idea of what this would be and it was so much more!"
"SO much helpful information from people on the job."
"The time to work together as a team, have these conversations and develop a plan was so helpful."
