Leadership Networks

Leadership Networks, a part of the AASA Leadership Development department, connects networks of organizations and individuals that share common goals and core beliefs. These networks link with each other and with the work of the department so that they find the mutual support needed in order to maintain and promote shared values and beliefs.

Eastern States Consortium for Learning and School System Excellence
The Eastern States Consortium for Learning and School System Excellence, founded in 2006 through AASA is a forum for school system leaders to address important issues related to student achievement and the preparation of students with 21st century skills.

Western States Benchmarking Consortium (WSBC)
The Western States Benchmarking Consortium, working in a strong partnership with the American Association of School Administrators, has enabled the leaders of its seven constituent districts to address important issues related to student achievement by providing a means for these leaders to provide mutual support for one another and to engage their staff members in projects that have benefited the students in each district.

New Network Formation
The Institute for Leadership Networks, a part of the AASA Center for System Leadership, is developing new consortia composed of school districts from across the country whose leaders value the benefits that can accrue from working together to share successes and challenges. The Institute wants to make the network experience available to many school system leaders across the country.
