Message from the President
We need to embrace our influence as elected leaders and better understand our role as educational leaders. We (school directors) are the ones in education who have the least opportunity for professional development for our roles, which is why AC is extremely important for our members. — Marnie Maraldo, 2018 WSSDA President
