Every Student Succeeding
Every Student Succeeding
ACSA believes every student deserves equal opportunities to succeed. On every school day throughout California, dedicated educators and courageous students overcome tremendous obstacles to reach their goals of academic excellence.
Their success is our success; their powerful stories are our inspiration.
Each year, ACSA recognizes 19 pre-K-adult students, one from each geographic region, as well as two California adult education students, for overcoming the odds and achieving success.
Students will be honored at ACSA's Leadership Summit Every Student Succeeding Luncheon in November, as well as at various regional events.
In 2018, the luncheon will take place Nov. 8 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront in San Diego, CA.
ACSA will actively publicize award recipients through the news media, and ACSA's website, publications and social media channels.
Nominations must be sent directly to the nominee's region. Each region will select one winner and honor them at region events throughout the year.
Regions, send your completed student nomination form (one student recipient per region) to the state ACSA Awards Program coordinator by March 1, 2019:
