About ACSA

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.

Since its founding in 1971, ACSA has played a significant role in steering the course for improvements and progress in public education and school administration. ACSA has been a leader in maximizing education funding and ensuring local spending flexibility, as well as developing rigorous academic standards, 21st century learning and improving efforts to close the achievement gap.
