Please know that the 2020 Dr. John R. Hoyle Memorial Administrative Leadership Institute has been canceled due to the challenges facing our school district partners as a result of school closures. We look forward to offering this prestigious conference in the future.

 The Stella Hotel

The Administrative Leadership Institute (ALI), which dates back to 1908, has been called “the best 24-hour conference in Texas” by leaders in Texas public education and higher education. Each November, the annual conference focuses on a critical issue to help school leaders transform schools to better ensure all children can become successful students and people. 

ALI is an opportunity for informal interaction and sharing among participants, who attend from school districts across Texas. It is a meeting place for friends and a venue for nationally recognized speakers and experts to re-energize those on the front lines educating Texas youth.


2019 ALI Focus

College, Career, and Workforce Ready

Join educational leaders across the state at Texas A&M this fall to explore the ways they are leading transformation in public school districts and build upon the strong ties between past students and future leaders. Bring a team of leaders from your district to experience engaging sessions at this year’s 24-hour conference. Not only will your team gain valuable insight into these bold initiatives, but your team will also have the opportunity to interact directly with innovators to take ideas back to your district. Join us this fall for the combination of learning and networking unique to ALI.


Who Should Attend

Superintendents, central office administrators, principals, and campus leaders are all welcome to attend ALI, and are encouraged to attend as a team.
