As we emerge from the global pandemic, ISTE has taken the opportunity to reevaluate our role in the broader education community. Technology is no longer an optional add-on, but a key tool for all learning.

After careful consideration and a comprehensive due diligence process, the ISTE Board of Directors has voted to merge with ASCD, the standard bearer for instructional leadership at the school and district levels.

The ASCD bylaws require a 45-day consideration period followed by a member vote. An ASCD member vote is scheduled for November, and if the vote is successful, the merger process will begin in January 2023.

As a result, ISTE Board nominations will be placed on hold pending the outcome of the voting process. More information will be available later this fall.



2022 Priorities

  • Governance oversight

Thank you for lending your voice to the future of edtech!

Rand Hansen Ed.D., ISTE Board President
