New Members Academy/Mentorship Training

Please note that this page is for the 2020 event. Details for the 2021 New Members Academy/Mentorship Training will be shared as details are finalized.

A priority for CASS involves ensuring that our members have both support and the smoothest possible transition to their positions. Accordingly, we have two programs that may be of interest to you.

New Members Academy/Mentorship Training is designed to include opportunities for:

  • Active, in-depth consideration of the Superintendent Leadership Quality StandardCASS Code of Professional Conduct (see Appendix II in handbook), research on system improvement, and related leadership issues;
  • Interaction with other participants in small-group settings;
  • Establishment of future networks;
  • Personal growth and development;
  • Interaction with education partners such as Alberta Education and the Alberta Teachers Association
  • Learning from a variety of resource personnel including current and retired CASS members.
  • A clear understanding of the new role including just-in –time support for issues and problems that may arise.

This program is available to all new CASS members. We meet four times during the year, meeting only twice outside of the regularly scheduled conferences in November and March.

Visit Mentorship Program for more information on being a mentor.
