The Association of California School Administrators is the largest umbrella organization for school leaders in the United States, serving more than 17,000 California educators.
ACSA's top priority is advocating for public school students in kindergarten through grade 12, as well as adult learners. Our mission is to be the driving force of education in California and beyond.
Structured through more than two dozen job-alike and issue-oriented councils and committees, a board of directors, as well as a leadership assembly, ACSA focuses on school leadership and education policy issues at the state and federal levels.
One of ACSA's priorities is to ensure that school leaders are recognized for their excellence. Through our annual awards program, we honor students, administrators and community organizations for their achievements and their dedication to public education.
Nominations forms are available in fall for the following year's program, due to each region by its deadline. The regional awards committees meet to select their nominees for the state awards in December and January, and the state committee convenes in spring to select that year's recipients. This year's honorees were announced in March, and will be featured in EdCal articles throughout summer and fall and honored at the Leadership Summit in November.
