A candidate’s professional profile should include successful leadership experience at the school, district and state levels; knowledge of California and national educational issues and the willingness to invest considerable time circulating and communicating at the state and federal levels; and a willingness to explore innovative approaches to meeting the goals of the ACSA Strategic Plan and seeks input to allow for modification and growth.

The consultants will screen applications and recommend candidates to the ACSA Board for interviews and further consideration.
Any contact with board members, in an attempt to influence the selection process, will be considered a breach of professional ethics. Board members reserve the right to visit a candidate’s current work place and community prior to a final decision.
