The Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is designed to build the capacity of district executive leaders for system-wide improvements in teaching and learning, culture, and overall district systems. Sessions will include opportunities for leaders to cultivate strategic approaches and actions in order to support district transformational efforts. In addition to the scheduled sessions, each participant will receive the support of an Executive Coach throughout the year.

The articles and premises of Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas will initially guide the work of each participant in the cohort. Using TASA’s Framework for Vision-Driven Instruction and Leadership, administrators will refine their skills as influencers focused on supporting campuses.
