Association of California School Administrators ACSA REGIONS AND CHARTERS Region relationship to state ACSA ACSA is divided into 19 regions within the state with geographic boundaries and numerical designations outlined in policy. The function of regions is to promote within the region the purposes of ACSA as stated in the bylaws, with programs and activities similar to and consistent with those of ACSA. Our nineteen regions elect governing boards and have their own bylaws, which must be consistent with State ACSA bylaws, must be reviewed every two years, and must be submitted to State ACSA by May of even numbered years. Each region elects a state director to serve on the State ACSA Board of Directors. In addition, each region must submit a programmatic plan and budget by October 1st as well as a report of progress on the objectives of that plan each year by August 31st. Regions are expected to develop and oversee Charters and Charter leadership within the region. They are to support and encourage networking, professional development and information dissemination within the region. They should also focus on identification and cultivation of future leaders; provide professional recognition, support member recruitment and participation of Region officers in the ACSA Leadership Assembly. Regions are significantly funded through state membership dues rebates at a level set by the ACSA Board of Directors. Regions are an extension of State ACSA and share the same tax ID number, so their financial operations are subject to ACSA's annual audit. Charter relationship to regions and state ACSA Charter groups are smaller units of ACSA within each region. The Charters operate under the jurisdiction of the region, with the size and focus, varying as determined by the region. Since Charters operate under the direction of the region, Charters have their own tax ID numbers. Each charter must submit to the leadership of their region their programmatic plan and budget by October 1st, as well as a report of progress on objectives of that plan each year by August 31st. 59
