Montgomery County Association of Administrators and Principals Joins AFSA

School principals, assistant principals and school district administrators in Montgomery County, Maryland, who work on curriculum, instructional support, student services, student support, transportation, food service and other school district business and operations voted last spring to affiliate their longtime independent local union with the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA).

This month, the Montgomery County Association of Administrators and Principals (MCAAP) have officially become AFSA Local 146. 

MCAAP leadership is excited to collaborate with other school district administrators and leaders from across the country to advance their shared goals and interests. 

“As an independent union, MCAAP has effectively represented the amazing leaders in schools, central office, and operations of Montgomery County Public Schools for decades; but times are rapidly changing and its apparent that we need to be part of a national organization that can help strengthen our voice and our advocacy for our members and our profession," said MCAAP President Christine Handy. “As the people who help lead and manage our county’s school district, we need a stronger voice at the table that will allow us to best serve our students and protect the working conditions of our members. Our members are excited to partner with AFSA."
