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.

At a press conference at the California State Capitol, Don Ulrich, Deputy Superintendent of Clovis USD and Chair of the Coalition for Adequate School Housing, joined education officials from CSBA and ACSA President Lisa Gonzales to call on the Department of Finance to speed the sale and increase the size of school construction bonds.
