PASCD, educators impacting teaching and learning through leadership.



We believe:

  • All learners must have equal access to a quality education.
  • Curriculum, instruction, and assessment must meet the needs of all learners.
  • Decisions about student learning and program effectiveness must be based on information from a variety of data sources and diverse assessments.
  • Educators must seize leadership roles that shape and influence educational practices, policies, and decisions.
  • Teaching and learning are to be supported through the integration of information tools and technologies.
  • The processes of curriculum development, supervision, teaching, and learning are dynamic and interdependent.
  • Professional development is essential to all educators.
  • Educational accomplishments shall be identified, shared, and celebrated.
