Why Become a Member?

WHY JOIN

Latino students are now the largest minority group in American schools, and Latinos are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States workforce.  As the Hispanic population in this country continues to grow, school districts throughout the nation are being impacted.  Schools are now dealing with addressing the needs of a changing population that may have a different culture, language and learning style.

WHO CAN JOIN

The Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) is a nonprofit organization effectively serving the educational needs of Latino youth through the professional development of administrators, and was established to partner with Hispanic serving schools to assist educators in advocating for resources and policies that benefit students in general and Hispanic students in particular.  In order to help us achieve this goal, we invite you to become a member of ALAS!
