New! Small Schools Network

Small Texas school districts share their own special set of challenges. So for 2023-24, TASA is launching a Small Schools Network to provide further support — through customized professional development and networking events — to districts with fewer than 1,300 students.

A design team composed of leaders of small school districts from across Texas met in summer 2023 to shape the network’s vision and scope. 

Registration is now open! Superintendents: See below for how to subscribe!

Upcoming Events

2023-24 Small Schools Network

Membership

Participation in the 2023-24 Small Schools Network is limited to a maximum of 225 participants representing Texas school districts with fewer than 1,300 students.

Schedule

Network events are a combination of in-person and virtual events.

In-Person Event #1: November 15-16, 2023 | Blue Ridge ISD

Meetup at the TASA Midwinter: January 2024, Austin

Virtual Event: March 5, 2024 | 8:30-10 a.m.

In-Person Event #2: May 7-9, 2024 | Port Aransas ISD

Network Events

Modeled after TASA’s extremely popular Future-Ready Superintendents Network (FRSLN), in-person events are hosted by small districts, where participants have the opportunity to visit campuses and learn directly from district leaders and educators how they are leveraging their strengths and overcoming challenges.

Participants were also invited to a meetup event in January 2024 during the TASA Midwinter Conference in Austin. 

A virtual event will be held in March 2024. Participants will have the opportunity to connect and share ideas with fellow leaders from small districts across the state in that session.
