Small Schools Network

Small Texas school districts share their own special set of challenges. TASA’s Small Schools Network provides 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 plans the network’s learning events. 

Upcoming Events

  • In-Person Event #1: November 12-14, 2024 | Cumby 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 during the TASA Midwinter Conference in Austin.

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