Your Membership Matters

AACTE thanks you for being a valued member. Your membership strengthens our collective voice to advance high-quality educator preparation and helps shape the future of education in America. 

As a fellow AACTE member, I know that AACTE is committed to providing us with tools and resources to help prepare educators for meeting the challenges in schools today. We can connect with peers on Connect360, learn how to collaborate with local district partners to allocate ESSER funds with the ARP Funding Toolkit, and access the AACTE Advocacy Center—our one-stop shop for member advocacy at the state and federal level. Membership also has cost-saving benefits including:
