A New Vision for Texas Public Schools
In 2006, the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) brought together 35 public school superintendents to explore their beliefs about public education. Over a period of 21 months, these school district leaders met to study and dialogue on the need for transformed schools designed by educators, not by the common political bureaucracies that control our public schools.
ALI 2012 in partnership with TASA invites all school district leaders to join us on November 7 & 8 to continue the dialogue on the new vision for public schools in Texas. With the start of the school finance litigation in a few months, the start of the 83rd Texas Legislature in Spring 2013, and the adoption of a resolution of concern on high stakes testing by over 600 school districts, the time is now for Texas school leaders to come together to continue the visioning work that was initiated in 2006.
The ALI 2012 program will focus on the six guiding principles set out in Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas (below) and the resulting collaboration of districts in the Mission: School Transformation network.
The New Digital Learning Environment
The New Learning Standards
Assessments for Learning
Accountability for Learning
A More Balanced and Reinvigorated State/Local Partnership
We invite you to join us in College Station on November 7 & 8 as we continue this very important dialogue.
For the first time, ALI will offer Major discounts for multiple registrations from the same district. In order to qualify for these discounts, districts must submit ALL REGISTRATIONS AT THE SAME TIME.
Online registration is now open.
