ACSA Vision Statement

“We serve educational leaders in the pursuit of equity and excellence to meet the diverse needs of all California students.”


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.

Assuming the presidency is Lisa Marie Gonzales, assistant superintendent for educational services in Dublin Unified School District, who has been on the Board of Directors for six years.
