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.
 
Administrators in California had long talked of forming an umbrella organization that encompassed their varied professional functions. Formed in July, 1971, ACSA became the first operative united administrator organization in the nation.
 
Since ACSA’s inception, administrator associations in 39 states have moved toward some form of consolidated or umbrella organization. ACSA is the only association in the nation that encompasses the broad spectrum of the management/leadership team.
 
ACSA serves administrators in 19 regions throughout California, each made up of local charters.
