Learn more about our Organization of the Month for August, 2016.
The National Runaway Safeline is proud to announce this month’s Organization of the Month, American Association of School Administrators (AASA). With August being “Back to School” month, we decided to honor one of our National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM) 2016 Partners!
AASA has been an NRPM partner for many years. We greatly appreciate their constant support throughout the years to help spread awareness about runaway and homeless youth. The AASA is an association for school superintendents and has existed for nearly 150 years. After the Civil War, a group of superintendents attended a National Teachers Association event and agreed that an organization needed to be created in order to provide support and share ideas amongst its members.
AASA recently welcomed their newest president, Alton Frailey. Below is a video of his inauguration as well as his speech about the direction he hopes to take AASA.
NRS is honored to name the American Association of School Administrators as our Organization of the Month for the month of August. We appreciate the services they provide for schools across the nation.
