Welcome to AZ ASCD – the premier professional organization for educators in the state of Arizona. AZ ASCD is the Arizona affiliate of ASCD International that works to bring the expertise and resources of ASCD and apply them to challenges and opportunities we are facing locally. With over 400 members, we bring teachers, administrators, higher education faculty, and others who are committed to education together for professional development offerings, networking events, sharing of research, and advocacy. The success of the affiliate depends on the involvement of our members. We invite each of you to check our website regularly for updates, to attend events offered by the affiliate, to volunteer your time and talents through membership in the affiliate and on our various committees, and to contact us when you have questions and concerns. Our mission of facilitating learner success by providing educators with leadership and support can only be accomplished with your involvement.
From hands-on workshops to inspiring speeches, the 2016 ASCD Annual Conference has more than 200 sessions on an extensive range of topics. So whether you are a new teacher or a seasoned administrator, you can customize a program to meet your professional needs. Join your peers to share knowledge, learn from others, and gain tools to help lead education into the future.
AZASCD provides professional development opportunities that build capacity at the school and system level for K–12 educators.
We need your help! Congress and state officials are making education policy decisions that affect you, your local schools, and your students.
Congratulations! Our very own Danielle Brown has been selected as one of 2015 ASCD Emerging Leaders, a group of dedicated educators who are ascending in their careers and who seek ways to contribute to ASCD’s mission. Read more.
