Superintendents Advisory Council

Superintendents Advisory Council

The Superintendents Advisory Council (SAC) was formed during the 2013-2014 school year as a joint collaboration of the Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) and the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents (M.A.S.S). The purpose of the group was to strengthen the lines of communication between ESE and Superintendents. The group is co-chaired by Tom Scott, Executive Director of M.A.S.S and Maureen LaCroix who is the Special Assistant to the Commissioner. Membership on the Council includes the M.A.S.S Officers and a representative from each of the Superintendent Roundtables.

Each meeting begins with an informational update from the Commissioner and includes presentations by ESE Senior Staff members on new programs and initiatives and updates on ongoing work. This Council has provided an important forum for the M.A.S.S representatives to voice concerns, raise questions and engage in a productive dialogue with the Commissioner and the Senior Staff.
