Presidents Welcome


Welcome to the South Dakota Association of Secondary School Principals (SDASSP) official website.  It is my honor to serve as President during the 2015 -16 and the 2016-17 school years. If you are a current member, Thank You, if you are not please consider joining our organization.  Contact me with any questions you may have.  SDASSP’s purpose is to provide a voice for middle and high school principals.  Each of you is represented by a region board member and 2 representatives on the SASD board.  I encourage you to take part in your monthly region meetings. It is our goal to provide networking opportunities for principals throughout the school year.  SDASSP also will host the spring conference in April 2016 at the Huron Convention Center.  The most current professional development opportunities will be provided.  This year’s main speaker will be Mr. Todd Whitiker, one of our nation’s leaders in education. 


As an organization we’re committed to your success, your students’ success, and your school’s success. Every day, your students rely on you to help them prepare for postsecondary learning and be workforce ready. We would like to be your “go to” for research-based professional development, accessible resources, and focused advocacy you need to get your job done well.  This era of education requires that Principals have numerous responsibilities.  We can all work together to help assure success and the everyday handling of the numerous responsibilities assigned to all of us. 


Please review the information on this site and contact me anytime if you have any questions or concerns.  It is my goal to provide a useful site.  If you want something added, please let me know.  


Thank you and have a great school year.


Steve Morford – SDASSP President
