Fuel your passion and drive your ambitions forward with a new online platform allowing AASA members to share winning strategies, resources and ideas, engage with colleagues across the nation (or right next door) and grow personal and professional learning communities.

Join the Community

AASA recognizes your concerns about the encroaching spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and its potential impact on schools, and aims to provide the best, most up-to-date information available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We also encourage you to visit the Emergency Management, School Safety and Crisis Planning Community to share resources and participate in discussions with fellow administrators, and check out the support and offers from our partners and solution providers.

The AASA Leadership Network is offering a series of virtual events about topics related to running districts under quarantine, staying connected to staff and students, implementing and ensuring quality distance learning and more.

Welcome to YOUR community website. We hope this tool will allow you to connect with your colleagues in a whole new way. Here are a few options for getting started in the platform:

  1. Login and access your Leadership Portfolio.

  2. Upload your profile photo and update fields such as bio and job history. You may also import information directly from LinkedIn.

  3. Join a community that speaks to your interests, and don’t worry, there are many more communities to come, so check back often.

  4. If you have a resource, please SHARE it in the appropriate community.
