2019-2020 KASSP

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”


We have added a new resource depository on the USA-Kansas Wild Apricot website to help Principals post questions, share resources, and find new information.  Please make use of this new way to share information with each other as we work together.

We are pleased to announce the formation of a new school principals association in our state! The boards of the Kansas Association of Elementary School Principals (KAESP) and the Kansas Association of Secondary School Principals (KASSP) have decided to combine forces to create this new association!  Beginning on July 1st, 2020 we will be known as the Kansas Principals Association (KPA)!  We plan on honoring the rich traditions of both associations while forging a strong commitment to serve all building leaders.

By combining our associations, we are looking forward to better serving the building principals in Kansas at all levels!  Planning is underway to create new regions within our state and appointing board members to represent all principals within their region.  We are also planning on increasing our professional development presence throughout the state to meet the varied needs of our principals.

As a current member of one of our associations we appreciate the support you have shown us in the past and look forward to your continued involvement in our new association.  Building level leaders like you are the backbone of education in our state and we look forward to serving you and your fellow principals at all levels!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to a board member in your area or district.

On behalf of the Kansas Association of Elementary School Principals and the Kansas Association of Secondary School Principals, we offer our welcome and support as we celebrate the 2019-2020 school year together!

In Hamish Brewer’s book, Relentless, he poses the question, “When you look over your shoulder, who will be standing there?” He goes on to say that, “The answer is simple: “Every single one of us!” We are in this together!” As organizations to support principals in Kansas we will be here for you - we hope you become an active member, reach out, network, and ask for what you need. Together we can change the outcomes for our students, staff, and our profession. Let us be a part of your team! We are stronger as ONE! 

We look forward to getting to know each of you as an individual and serving you through our organizations. Please contact us and share how we can make a difference for you.
