Awards Program

One of ACSA's priorities is to ensure that school leaders are recognized for their excellence. Through our annual awards program we honor administrators and community members for their achievements and their dedication to public education.

ACSA's 2015 statewide recipients have been announced! View the complete list here.

Recipients will be honored at the Leadership Summit on Friday, November 6, 2015 in Sacramento. Use this form to purchase additional tickets, or find out more about this year's Summit. 

Each year ACSA recognizes a select group of individuals for their significant contributions to education through three prestigious awards named in memory of past ACSA leaders: Ferd. Kiesel Memorial Distinguished Service Award, Marcus Foster Memorial Award for Administrator Excellence and the Robert E. Kelly Award.

In addition, members are honored for outstanding performance and achievement as Administrators of the Year in 21 job-alike categories.

The Valuing Diversity Award is given to the member whose efforts to promote diversity epitomize ACSA’s mission statement.

Programs and businesses that collaborate with administrators in support of education are also recognized though the Partners in Educational Excellence Award.

ACSA also recognizes the extraordinary achievements of students in each year's Every Student Succeeding Program.
