The College of Alberta School Superintendents is the professional voice of Alberta’s system education leaders, whose mission is to provide leadership, expertise, and advocacy to improve, promote, and champion student success. CASS works to achieve its mission by adhering to a set of strongly entrenched values shared by its members working toward the common vision of achieving leadership excellence for world-class public education.
CASS and its predecessor organizations have served as the voice for Alberta’s school system leaders since the 1960s. Throughout its history, CASS has been an active presence in Alberta’s education system and has worked with its education partners on numerous discussions and initiatives to proactively strengthen and transform Alberta’s world-class education system by representing the voice of system leaders. Since 2013, CASS has seen an increase in its membership of approximately 60 percent. In addition, CASS has become much more representative of publicly funded education in Alberta, with membership from all 61 public, Catholic and Francophone school authorities, 12 of 13 charter school authorities, and approximately 60% of the 47 First Nations school authorities in Alberta.
On behalf of the CASS Board of Directors, I extend appreciation to every CASS member for their service to and support of their respective students, staff and communities.
