The mission of IL ASCD is to build the capacity of educational leaders to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.

Enjoy the Many Services and Opportunities ILASCD has to Offer

We are proud to offer a wide variety of topics presented by national leaders in education. Our staff and Board are "in the trenches" daily making us experts on teaching and learning. If you don't see a workshop that fits the need of your learning community please let us know and we can design a learning opportunity specifically for you. We ask that you use ILASCD as a resource to share your thinking, answer your questions while working together to better the whole child who deserves our best.
