TASA is launching a brand-new and very different type of leadership development program designed especially for TASA member superintendents — Breakaway Leadership. It’s a six-month, mostly virtual program intended to help superintendents learn new habits and skills that will enable them to perform at the highest levels of leadership 24/7, setting themselves apart from other leaders. Registration is open through November 5.
If you’re a school leader in a Texas public school, we invite you to join TASA. Membership is available in several categories and brings with it not only individual member benefits and services, but gives your district access to valuable services and subscriptions.

It also highlights a collaborative education summit held by Permian Basin leaders representing schools, business, and more. The issue’s Higher Education column focuses on lessons learned from students and teachers about the impact of space on learning. And the TSPRA Voice column provides administrators with a brief “guide to effective school communications.”
