About The SAA
What is the School Administrators Alliance?
The School Administrators Alliance (SAA) is a statewide organization established to provide five associations of public school administrators with government relations services and a unified political voice. The SAA is an alliance of:
Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA)
Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials (WASBO)
Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators (WASDA)
Wisconsin Council of Administrators of Special Services (WCASS)
Wisconsin Association of School Personnel Administrators (WASPA)
As the combined government relations arm of these five associations, the SAA represents the interests of Wisconsin school children and Wisconsin public schools before the State Legislature, the Office of the Governor and the state agencies. The SAA supports legislation that improves Wisconsin public schools and the quality of education for Wisconsin school children. The SAA actively participates with other groups in addressing issues of mutual concern.
The mission of the SAA is to represent the interests of Wisconsin school children. The SAA advocates on behalf of school leaders in their efforts to strengthen Wisconsin’s national leadership in education to ensure that Wisconsin’s children receive the highest quality education possible.
The SAA was founded in 1991 when the Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators (WASDA) and the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators Alliance (AWSA) joined their advocacy efforts. With the addition of the Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials (WASBO) in 1992 and the Wisconsin Council of Administrators of Special Services (WCASS) in 1994, the SAA has grown to represent more than 3,000 members – virtually every licensed school administrator in the state of Wisconsin. This diverse membership provides a broad prospective and a deep understanding of educational issues.
