Championing Public Education
As school leaders, TASA members play a crucial role as advocates for public education in Texas — both as ambassadors and as activists. They not only promote the successes of our public schools, but they actively participate in the state’s legislative and public policy processes on issues critical to school districts and the children and communities they serve. TASA members benefit from support that helps them champion initiatives and policy to equip an educated citizenry.
Collaboration with Stakeholders
The TASA Governmental Relations team works with legislators and other state leaders as well as other education associations to defend and advance our neighborhood public schools for Texas students.
Education and Information
In addition to the following resources and information that helps school leaders be informed advocates, TASA members receive legislative/policy-related updates via Capitol Watch Alert emails — daily during legislative sessions and as needed in the interim.
Sharing Schools’ Successes
Through awards programs, TASA helps school leaders shine the spotlight on individuals in their districts who work tirelessly on behalf of students. And through our communications, we advocate for public schools by sharing their success stories and good news.
Through our Mission: School Transformation initiative — a movement that continues to evolve Texas public education into a system that prepares future-ready students — TASA is helping to engage the digital generation with new technologies and learning standards that focus on preparing students to be future-ready.
