The GSSA accepts as its mission the role of chief advocate for Georgia’s public school children. It is dedicated to the premise that all children can be successful in school.
In order to help schools become exciting places of learning that can make a difference in the lives of Georgia’s future leaders, the GSSA provides school superintendents with numerous on-going programs for professional development and a sophisticated network of communication tools to expedite communication to and from members.
The GSSA also provides superintendents with a variety of materials to inform them of public education trends, initiatives, policies and procedural changes.
Founded in 1921, the GSSA is one of Georgia’s oldest education-based professional organizations.
It is the state chartered organization representing the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) and also provides leadership and representation at the national level for matters of public education.
