We value our partners.
The School Superintendents Association (AASA)
In February 1866, this new organization called itself the National Association of School Superintendents. In a period of our country’s reconstruction, school people were concerned about the role of education.
In 1870, the National Association of School Superintendents along with the American Normal School Association merged with the National Teachers Association to create the National Education Association. Within the NEA, the Department of Superintendents was formed.
Decades later, in the 1930s, the administrators decided to break away and became the American Association of School Administrators. Today, we are known as AASA, The School Superintendents Association.
From the very beginning, it was apparent that advocacy would be the driving force behind this newly formed organization. AASA is the premier association for school system leaders and serves as the national voice for public education and district leadership on Capitol Hill.
Minnesota Association of School Administrators (MASA)
CrisisGo and MASA have partnered with one another to help transform Minnesota's districts emergency reponse plans by taking them out of their three-ring binder and placing them into the mobile devices of all first responders and teachers. MASA serves over 600 active educational administrators and 250 retired school administrators. Their mission is to establish the statewide agenda for children, serve as the preeminent voice for public education, and empower members through quality services and support.

By placing vital information such as emergency checklists, alerts, notifications, evacuation maps, and student rosters, first responders and staff can take a proactive approach to handling any type of emergency that might occur.

The service “platforms” from the Workers’ Compensation insurance company and agent, plus the liability insurance carrier are exceptional and help to reduce costs. Workers’ Compensation dividends are very competitive with the long-term goals of the reduction of accidents, Experience Mods, and premiums through a variety of specialized services and risk management best practices.
