Board of Director Report

October 2018

The ACSA State Board has finalized and approved the Strategic Plan.  The Board, with input from the Regions, have narrowed their focus and developed milestones for the first year of this implementation to the following Key Areas:  Member Development and Support, Advocacy and Influence, and Organizational Development and Sustainability.  More information can be found at the ACSA website:

Membership in Region VII is holding steady at 618 members.  Recruitment is always a priority and members are encouraged to bring potential new members to charter and region events.

I attended the VPLA (Vice President for Legislative Action) state meeting last week.  The Government Relations staff are constantly working to advocate for ACSA members on behalf of the 6.3 million students in California.  Legislative Action Day will be held April 7-8, 2019, so mark your calendars for this important event. 

The new Resource Hub also on the ACSA website provides materials for a variety of circumstances, including curriculum, crisis situations, or current legislation to name a few.  Members are accessing the hub frequently and if you are interested in having an article posted the process is clearly outlined through the publications link. 

The Fatal School Violence Task Force has been at work creating a toolkit that can be accessed in case of a crisis on your campus or in your district.  The Committee will be rolling out the components of the toolkit at the upcoming Leadership Summit and also at the California School Boards Conference in San Francisco. 

It truly is an honor to serve as your Region VII representative to the ACSA State Board.  If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at

October, 2017

ACSA State Board is beginning a new Strategic Planning process that will build on the Association’s success over the past five years and assure it remains vital and relevant for its members for many years to come. Nominees have been submitted for a representative for Region VII in the process. 

ACSA is currently asking for input on the following questions: 

1. What are the top three professional trends that will shape school administration over the next 5-10 years? 

2. What are the top three trends impacting public agencies in general (including public schools) over the next 5-10 years? 

3. What “macro” trends impacting society as a whole will have significant impact on the profession over the next 5-10 years? 

*** If you have comments, please submit your input to 

ACSA’s next State Board meeting will be held on October 13th in Los Angeles. As Region VII’s State Board representative, I want to ensure our voices are heard and I represent our regional needs. I will also be representing us on the State Membership Committee, with our first meeting being held in San Jose on November 1st. Our membership in the Region continues to increase due to our efforts in recruitment. Keep up the great work! 

Thank you for providing me the opportunity to be your representative.
