Welcome to

Maine ASCD

Maine ASCD is an affiliate branch of ASCD, an international organization with over 160,000 members from around the world, dedicated to learning, teaching, and leading.

Our mission is to provide leadership in shaping, energizing and customizing learning for Maine educators.

About Us

Maine ASCD strives to provide leadership in shaping, energizing and customizing learning for Maine educators. Maine ASCD remains one of the largest, independent educational associations in the state.

Maine ASCD was chartered in 1975 as the local affiliate of the international ASCD whose headquarters are located in Alexandria, Virginia.  As with ASCD, our association initially focused on curriculum and supervision issues. Over the years, our focus has changed. Like ASCD, Maine ASCD now addresses all aspects of effective learning, teaching and leading, such as professional development, educational leadership, and capacity building.

ASCD and Maine ASCD offer broad, multiple perspectives – across all education professions – in reporting key policies and practices. Because we represent all educators, we are able to focus solely on professional practice within the context of, “Is it good for the children?”, rather than what is reflective of a specific educator role. In short, ASCD and Maine ASCD reflect the conscience and content of education.
