Advancing Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Leading
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 several one-day Professional Development Institutes and two conferences, which provide outstanding professional learning opportunities for Virginia educators. Through our influence work, we promote education policy that is driven by what we know about teaching and learning. Our publications not only keep members informed, but also provide access to scholarly work being done by Virginia educators.
