WHO WE ARE

Virginia ASCD

Virginia ASCD, an affiliate of ASCD, is a membership organization dedicated to advancing excellence in Virginia’s schools. We are teachers, superintendents, university professors, building leaders, teacher education students, and central office leaders. We represent a variety of roles, but we share a single purpose- ensuring a world-class education for every Virginia student.

Each year, VASCD sponsors outstanding professional learning opportunities for Virginia educators through our conferences, seminars, and networking forums. Through our advocacy work, we promote education policy that is driven by what we know about teaching and learning. Our publications keep members informed and provide access to scholarly work being done by Virginia educators.

Whether or not you are a member, we invite you to be part of our network by attending our events, getting to know your regional representative, supporting our advocacy work, and connecting with us via social media.
