NHASP 2022-2023 Conference Series

Hello All,

I hope you are all well and feeling positive and energized about all the GREAT things that will happen in your school communities this coming year!

As you know, there has been a substantial transition regarding our leadership roles throughout the state.  Some of you are perhaps new to a school, or district, whilst others of you are completely new to your leadership roles.

We are here to support all of you with many engaging professional learning opportunities that will be offered throughout the year.

However, due to all these role changes we wanted to ensure that we offered support, early on, to our newest leaders in the state, which is why we are offering this innovative and engaging day of networking and professional learning for all of our Early Career Leaders.

If you are a new leader in your first -fifth year , or an aspiring leader, we hope you will consider attending this event with us this coming September (see attachment for more details).

If you are an experienced (5-15 years), or accomplished leader (15+years of experience)  and you know of some early career leaders in your school, or district, we hope you will encourage them to attend this event.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself at bbellemare@nhasp.org or Chantal Alcox, our new Professional Learning Coordinator, at calcox@nhasp.org with any questions.

We hope that you and/or your staff will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity, which will also include round-table discussion topics supported by some of NHASP’s valued mentors!

Wishing you all a fantastic start to your school year!  YOU’VE GOT THIS!!!

Best Regards,


Bridey Bellemare, Executive Director



We invite you to bring your district team to join us for this 3-day highly interactive leadership training facilitated by coaching, leadership and management expert Michael Swenson. Michael is a long-standing professor at Cornell University and consultant at Franklin Covey.

As many children are not yet eligible for COVID-19 vaccination, the updated guidance emphasizes the prevention strategies most important for in-person learning, regardless of whether schools can implement all the prevention strategies. This guidance gives schools a flexible, science-based approach to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to keep students, teachers, and staff healthy and in the classroom.

Guidance for COVID-19 Prevention in K-12 Schools

Our top priority in the coming months must be to work together to continue to safely reopen all schools for in-person learning, beginning with children in grades K-8.
