Hands-on learning from experienced district leaders
- Listen and learn from current superintendents and research experts
- Benefit from educational leaders as your facilitators
In 2010, the Principals’ Institute (PI) was established with an emphasis on operationalizing the work of the superintendents’
Visioning Institute and its product, Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas (Visioning Document). PI is a year-long
professional development series that provides a unique opportunity for principals to understand why transformation of public
education is necessary, and develop the knowledge and skills required to lead and build the capacity to sustain transformation
The future of Texas public schools depends on the quality of its leaders. Attending PI allows principals to experience one of the most noteworthy professional growth opportunities in their career and collaborate with the innovative PI network that now stretches nationwide. In 2017, PI introduced Schools Transforming Learning, a designation program recognizing campuses led by PI principals that are making exceptional strides toward transforming learning for students.
Each session is developed by a Design Team consisting of former and current Principals’ Institute participants and the N2 Learning partners. This collaborative effort results in sessions focused on the topics and current issues relevant to the work of campus principals.
This session will coincide with TASA Midwinter Conference.
“I enjoyed the networking with other leaders across the state of Texas who had the same level of passion for students and teachers as I did.”
“Principals' Institute was a safe place to say as a leader, this is working at our school and this is what I need help with. It was valuable to see how districts are so different and yet how we could network and share ideas together.”
“I felt like the Principals' Institute has empowered me as a principal. I have learned that I am the chief marketing executive for our school. It is my job to tell the story about all of the great things we do at our campus and in public education.”
As a 20-year administrator, The Principals' Institute has done more to shape my leadership than any other single experience. If you thrive in an environment of passionate educators, committed to transform public education, you will find it here. The topics discussed are thought-provoking, and you will leave every experience with ideas that will help you succeed in your work. Join us and connect to greatness!
Participating in the Principals' Visioning Institute has been one of the highlights of my career. I left each session feeling re-energized, more grounded in the vision for 21st century schools, and more confident in my abilities at leading transformation on my campus. It truly was the ultimate gift!
