Eastern States Consortium - for Learning and School System Excellence

l  About Leadership Networks  l  Eastern States Consortium l  Western States Consortium  New Network Formation l


The Eastern States Consortium is one of several consortiums developed by AASA Leadership Development department. These consortiums allow like-minded leaders to focus on key issues and learn from each other, with the goal of improving education for all children.

On May 17, 2006, superintendents from six school districts in the eastern United States, from Virginia to Louisiana, each representing districts of 2,100-9,000 students, convened for the first meeting of a new consortium. This new network is a part of the Network of Leadership Networks and the work of AASA Leadership Development.

The Eastern States Consortium is a forum for school system leaders to address important issues related to student achievement and the preparation of students with 21st century skills. The consortium offers a means for its members to exchange ideas and strategies for improving their school systems, provide mutual support for one another, and engage their individual districts in projects to benefit the students across their districts.

MISSION: All students will graduate with the knowledge and skills necessary to be responsible, productive citizens in the 21st century.
