Leadership TASB (LTASB)

Leadership TASB is a unique board development program designed to take experienced board members to a new level of service and leadership by exposing them to a variety of issues, people, activities, and locations during a year-long program. The program is composed of multiple sessions held among a cohort group of 36 participants. Class members are selected for demonstrated leadership in their local district and communities, and for their representation of the diversity of Texas school districts.

Traditionally the year-long program consists of five weekend sessions lasting two-to-three days each. The program begins at the TASA/TASB Convention and concludes at Summer Leadership Institute (SLI). Nationally-known speakers and experts in education and business address themes such as the following:

  • TeamworkLeadership TASB Logo
  • Trusteeship
  • Equity
  • Diversity
  • Visionary leadership

Sessions rotate among different Texas cities and include visits to successful schools and innovative programs. Participants build relationships with colleagues from around the state while discovering solutions for today’s public education challenges and learning how to address the challenges the future is expected to bring.
