Facilitated by N2 Learning in partnership with the Texas Association of School Administrators

The Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is designed to build the capacity of district executive leaders for system-wide improvements in teaching and learning. Sessions will include opportunities for leaders to cultivate strategic approaches and actions in order to support district transformational efforts. In addition to the scheduled sessions, each participant will receive the support of an Executive Coach throughout the year.


What can participants expect to engage in?

The articles and premises of Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas will initially guide the work of each participant in the cohort. Using TASA’s Framework for Vision-Driven Instruction and Leadership, administrators will refine their skills as influencers focused on supporting campuses.

ELI provides a systematic approach to bridge the personal leadership qualities that were key in past successes to being strategic and successful in central office leadership roles.

Session Topics

  • Leading Transformational Change
  • Systems Thinking in a Collaborative Culture
  • Becoming an Influencer

Who Should Attend ELI?

District administrators, both experienced as well as leaders who are new to the role, are ideal candidates for participation in ELI. It is beneficial for teams of 2 - 7 district leaders to participate in ELI.


  • Registration is $4,000 per participant (excluding travel expenses)
  • ELI is held over the course of a school year in a series of 4, 2 day meetings that rotate locations between Austin, Houston, and Dallas.
