and how we empower educators around the state.
CO ASCD, the official Colorado State Affiliate of ASCD, has been empowering educators since 1965. As one of the oldest education organizations in our state, we operate by creating and curating innovative, research based strategies to engage you and your students, propel your voice through advocating for your needs at the state and federal level, and create connections across the educational sector.
The CO ASCD experience is filled with networking opportunities with world-renowned authors, innovative PK-20 professional growth and learning experts, and colleagues across the state and country. Each experience supports ASCD's vision for The Whole Child to be safe, healthy, challenged, engaged, and supported.
Our Colorado affiliate comprises over 2,500 active members. Ranging in experience and positions - from superintendents and principals, to teachers, retirees, students, and even passionate advocates. We boast a diverse, nonpartisan membership, and seek to project a powerful, unified voice to top decision-makers in Colorado education.
"It's not often you find an education organization that provides everything you need as a professional. I've found that in CO ASCD."
- Jill Lewis, CO ASCD President
