As we embark upon another quarter of CCASN Solutions, I would like to highlight a very special historical CCASN moment! Happy 20th Birthday to the College and Career Academy Support Network at the Graduate School of Education (GSE). I continue to be humbled by the opportunity to serve CCASN as it’s latest Executive Director. It is quite a privilege to join an institutional team with such rich legacy as a leader in the field and powered by a collective team of leaders whose commitment, vision and action has “solutions” built into its organizational DNA! Please see a detailed overview of our GSE sponsored Birthday engagements below, which will be held on October 19, 2018 from 4:00-9:00p at our new home, 2121 Berkeley Way, Berkeley, CA  94720-1670.
