PSAT & SAT Teacher Tools are Here!

You asked and the folks at the College Board and Khan Academy listened! Teachers who have been supporting students as they are using the Official SAT Practice in Khan Academy requested the ability to track student progress and this is now possible. There are many possible uses and applications for the new "teacher tools" that can allow teachers, counselors and principals to monitor student progress within Khan Academy.

October Is Principals Month

Principals typically don't get much recognition, so during the month of October, which is recognized as both Michigan and National Principals Month, we are going to celebrate the great work that all of you do!

Principals are generally so concerned about everyone else's morale that you don't think about your own. Throughout the month, MASSP will be putting the spotlight on YOU – the leader who gets up early, stays up late and goes above and beyond to get the job done. Thank you for your service to your schools, students, staff and your community!
