2021 Virtual National Conference on Education #NCE2021


As our nation’s public-school leaders continue to face challenges and uncertainty into the 2020/2021 school year, we have decided to make the announcement, now, to move the 2021 National Conference on Education online. It’s imperative that superintendents and school districts around the country have access to data, research and best practices shared by experts and thought leaders only available through AASA’s national conference.  #NCE2021 #totalchild #leadersmatter #lovepubliceducation

Oregon’s Gustavo Balderas Named 2020 AASA National Superintendent of the Year®


“It is truly an honor to serve in the role of superintendent of the Eugene Public Schools. I am blessed to be in my community,” said Balderas as a 2020 National Superintendent of the Year® finalist. “Seeing that kids are succeeding because of the changes we’re making drives me. We, as leaders, need to be champions for our profession. Education is the backbone to our democracy.” 

“On behalf of public education and the more than 50 million students learning and growing in our public schools, it is truly an honor to congratulate Gustavo Balderas for being named the 2020 National Superintendent of the Year®,” said Daniel A.
