Exploring Education Policy & Legislative Issues
As school leaders, TASA members play a crucial role as advocates for public education in Texas. 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. To support their advocacy efforts on behalf of Texas public schools, TASA offers school leaders opportunities for in-depth exploration of education policy and legislative issues.
TASA/TASB Legislative Conference
Each legislative session year, TASA and the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) hold a free, daylong conference for TASA and TASB members. Trustees and administrators hear from legislators and other Capitol insiders on proposed bills then travel to the Capitol to meet with their representatives.
TASA txedFest is the reimagining of TASA’s annual summer conference. Starting in 2021, txedFest will be the gathering for Texas school leaders who want to learn more about grassroots advocacy and become the best public education champions they can be!
