American Association of School Administrators
The American Association of School Administrators, founded in 1865, is the professional organization for more than 13,000 educational leaders across the United States. AASA members range from chief executive officers, superintendents and senior level school administrators to cabinet members, professors and aspiring school system leaders.
AASA members are the chief education advocates for children. AASA members advance the goals of public education and champion children’s causes in their districts and nationwide. As school system leaders, AASA members set the pace for academic achievement. They help shape policy, oversee its implementation and represent school districts to the public at large.
The AASA Annual Report highlights the association’s activities and accomplishments. Information includes updates on the AASA Center for System Leadership™ and the Stand Up for Public Education™ campaign, as well as the latest governance activities, advocacy initiatives, communications outreach, membership milestones, conferences and meetings activities, program and resource development and more.
AASA’s Stand Up for Public Education Campaign is a multiyear effort to support high-quality public education. The campaign is founded on the core belief that public education is vital to the continued success of American democracy and that leadership matters in improving outcomes for children.
