ASCD is dedicated to excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Comprising 114,000 members-superintendents, principals, teachers, and advocates from more than 127 countries-the ASCD community also includes 57 affiliate organizations.
Our diverse, nonpartisan membership is our greatest strength, projecting a powerful, unified voice to decision makers around the world.
From the first day of a teacher preparation program to the last day on the job, ASCD supports educators regardless of their years of service, positions, or titles. We're committed to helping educators enhance their crafts and enhance their roles by providing high-quality, research-based resources and support they can trust.
ASCD strives to expand our influence as an international organization that is widely recognized for helping educators define, support, and engage in the development of highly effective learning systems.
Educators everywhere have a vision to change the world-one child at a time. It's our vision, too. Supporting the whole child is at the core of our mission and everything we do at ASCD as we work to ensure that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
