Message from the President 

Hello! On behalf of Arkansas ASCD, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our web page.

Our organization is governed by a Board of Directors that is composed of diverse educators who represent various interests in education. Arkansas ASCD is affiliated with ASCD and strives to make certain that education in Arkansas addresses the tenets of the whole child - healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

Our Board of Directors met in July 2019 and developed a strategic plan for our organization for the 2019-2020 school year. We identified 3 goals for our organization: (1) Advocate for the whole child; (2) Cultivate meaningful relationships; and (3) Empower ALL educators. As part of this strategic planning, our Board identified many actions that support our goals. We know that you will be impressed with the work our board is doing this year and can't wait to share with you how we intend to impact education in our state and nation this year!

As your President, I want to encourage you our members to get involved in our efforts! If you are interested in serving in any capacity, please let us know. We are a hard-working board, a group of committed individuals, and share a love for our schools, fellow educators, and students. If you are not yet a member, we would love to have you join our organization of committed educators who advocate for and put students first every day. Look for more information on this webpage.

We wish you a wonderful 2019-2020 school year and please, join us or get involved!


Dr. Tracy Tucker, Arkansas ASCD President
