District/COE Membership

School District Membership is available to school districts with an ADA under 5,000 students and includes the Superintendent, district Board Members, and district staff. By becoming a District Member of SSDA, you are joining a professional organization that continues to be a strong voice and an effective advocate for the needs and interests of small school districts throughout the state of California. Through our monthly newsletters, regional workshops, webinars and conferences, we are certain that the Small School Districts’ Association can support and assist you in your district’s quest for excellence.

School districts qualify for Elite Membership when their COE joins at the Elite Level. When a COE joins at the Elite Level, each small school district within their county will receive 50% off their basic membership. Email taylor@ssda.org to see if you qualify for elite membership.

Why join SSDA?

Membership is available to all Charter Schools throughout California. With the recent and upcoming changes to laws specifying how charter schools are governed and run, the differences between charter schools and small school districts have been shrinking. Charter schools are starting to realize they have a lot more in common with small school districts. For that reason, we invite you to consider joining the Small School Districts’ Association (SSDA).

Membership is available to all county offices. Become a member and support the small school districts in your county by taking advantage of our monthly newsletters, regional workshops, webinars and conferences. Become an elite member and further support the small school districts within your county by saving them 50% on their membership. Whichever membership you choose, we are certain that you will find it to be of great benefit to you and your districts.

County Offices of Education (COEs) are given the opportunity to further support their small school districts by joining at the Elite Level. When a COE joins at the Elite Level, each small school district within their county will receive 50% off their basic membership. Additionally, the County Office receives one (1) free registration to the Annual Spring Conference.
