SASPA Chief Executive – Jayne Heath
In 2020 the South Australian Secondary Principals’ Association (SASPA) went through a reorganisation process. The new organisational arrangement provides for a Chief Executive (employed full-time to lead and manage the Association’s operational work) whilst continuing to have an elected President (who chairs the SASPA Board and is responsible for its governance obligations).
From 2022, Jayne Heath is undertaking the Chief Executive role. Under this model, SASPA members should notice few changes to the Association’s operations. Jayne is responsible to the SASPA Board for the effectiveness and efficiency of the Association’s operations including meeting key performance indicators related to the SASPA Strategic Plan (2021 – 2023).
Jayne brings to the role of SASPA Chief Executive some 43 years of experience in South Australian public schools, of which 25 were in senior leadership roles.
Jayne has been a member of the SASPA Board for more than 10 years and, for much of this time, has been the Convenor of SASPA’s Professional Learning Strategic and Conference Planning Groups. She has a Masters of Education (Professional Learning) and has exhibited a dedication and passion for high quality public education throughout her professional life. Jayne is an advocate for policy initiatives that better address issues of equity in education.
Jayne will be the first contact for member requests for advice, mentoring and support and for outside organisations wanting to connect and/or collaborate with SASPA.
