Who is NESPA?

NESPA boasts a membership of hundreds of schools representing 48 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Virgin Islands, Australia and Ireland. Educational research shows that students write more and better when they are writing regularly for a real audience. School media offer students wonderful writing, photo and video opportunities for real audiences.

NESPA helps schools pull everything together for members by publishing an extensive “Kids In Print” book and a regular email newsletter, NESPA News, for member schools and individuals. These publications are filled with ideas, suggestions, hints, software reviews and more. Member teachers are invited to submit their ideas and new discoveries for future editions of both publications, as well as our social media.

The association also helps schools share their school media by encouraging swaps with fellow members via our website and social media.
