Montana ASCD - Working together to promote success for all Montana students


  1. Expand the sphere of our influence by being a strong and proactive organization  dedicated to providing exemplary leadership and support for educators throughout  the state.  
  2. Make member services a priority in order to assure that across this geographically  expansive and isolated state, we have a membership that represents all counties and  includes a diverse array of cultures.  
  3. Address pressing contemporary curricular issues for the purpose of bringing an  awareness of critical concerns to our educational leaders, who will participate in  determining responses appropriate to our diverse rural Montana school environment.
