Classified Educational Leaders Institute
ACSA’s annual Classified Educational Leaders Institute is specifically designed for classified education leaders in all areas of management, including business/fiscal services, human resources/personnel, maintenance/operations, custodial, technology, facilities, student services/instructional, including confidential and administrative assistants. It is an opportunity to share information and best practices, as well as learn about issues that impact education.
Innovation. Inclusion. Empowerment. Join ACSA for two days of workshops, discussions and learning moments designed specifically for teams of principals and teachers, parent leaders, counselors and central office administrators to deepen their explorations of how these pathways can lead us closer to our goals in pursuit of educational equity. This event is designed to provide education leaders with the tools they need to develop, implement and articulate pathways to equity in education in a safe and supportive space. Network and learn from local leaders who are succeeding in building foundations for student success despite the challenges and barriers that exist.
Every Child Counts Symposium
ACSA’s Student Services and Special Education Council presents this world-class learning event each year, featuring exciting workshops, informative keynotes and opportunities for skill development and networking. The event is designed for both beginning and veteran educational leaders and focuses on the latest in the field of student services and special education.
The Leadership Summit is ACSA’s premier professional development event. This annual gathering of educators at all levels of administration is a celebration of the profession. For 2.5 days, this event provides opportunities for invaluable networking and offers professional development on current critical leadership and educational issues.
Lead with Pride Summit
A Summit to empower California School Administrators and Educators with the tools to create safe and affirming spaces for LGBTQIA+ students and staff.
Having a well-trained and informed negotiation team provides the framework upon which school change and student academic success is built. Those working in the field of negotiations need to keep their skills sharp while staying abreast of the latest law and policy related to their work.
Appealing to those in all areas of human resources as well as those who are aspiring to move into the field, the ACSA Personnel Institute is one of our more popular professional development events. The presenters are a well-respected mix of practitioners, consultants and attorneys. This three-day event offers interactive workshop sessions providing information on a variety of current issues confronting human resources administrators.
Summer Leadership Institute
Summer Residential Program @ UCLA
Join us for a five-day Intensive Summer Leadership Institute for experienced, new and aspiring Principals. Hear from nationally-recognized speakers and share in facilitated small groups how you can apply the knowledge in your schools and communities, both virtually and as our schools begin to re-open. Learn how these experts suggest we look at re-imagining schools and learning for the future.
This annual event brings school leaders from around the state together for an invaluable two and a half days of professional learning, networking and advocacy. This is the best time to look at the governor’s budget and for superintendents to get together to review the state-of-the-state and the state-of-the-district. That’s essential, but more than ever before it is time for superintendents to lead a movement to restore California schools to their once held rank of the best in the nation. A focus will be on integrating technology into curriculum and professional development in a digital world.
Women in School Leadership Forum
Women are underrepresented in all areas of school leadership. Let's work together to level the playing field. The Women in School Leadership Forum is the premier networking and educational experience designed to engage, enlighten and empower women education leaders from across the country.
