What is advancing educational leadership?

Now more than ever, effective school leaders are critical to successful student outcomes. As the state of Texas implements the new Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS), administrators will benefit from training that provides support in the implementation of impactful strategies designed to improve instruction and student performance at the campus and district level.

Administrators must be knowledgeable in curriculum and instruction, must be skillful in data gathering and analysis, must be able to set goals, must be skillful in conducting effective conferences, must have team-building skills and conflict resolution skills, and have mentoring and coaching skills. In order to meet these expectations, the Texas Education Agency and ESC Region 13 have developed Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL). This three-day engaging and research based training is required for teacher appraisers along with T-TESS evaluation training.


How can advancing educational leadership help?

Along with the new three day AEL training, this site has been designed to provide school leaders with the hidden curriculum of what it takes to be a successful school leader. Leading a school is a complex and overwhelming task and that's why we promise to provide you with inspirational and practical tools to help school leaders grow and learn along the way with their schools and students.
