TASSP Summer Workshop
Austin Convention Center
June 12-14, 2013
Come Early! Stay Late!
From the kick-off celebration honoring our Texas Heroes to the Friday morning closing general session, you will not want to miss the TASSP Summer Workshop. This is a state-level workshop but it is recognized with national-level conferences because it is designed around two levels of commitment. The first commitment is to student success, and the second commitment is to offer training that enables and empowers the first through knowledgeable, focused, creative and passionate leadership. We believe that the principal and campus-level leadership team is the best-positioned leaders to ensure uninterrupted years of excellence in teaching for every student. To develop this well-trained team of instructional leaders, i.e., principals and assistant principals, both current and aspiring, TASSP offers a high-quality professional development program at the TASSP Summer Workshop.
Commit today. Take time to learn with and from your peers and from high-quality teachers who are leading the way in developing effective strategies for reaching all students. Investing in high-quality professional development is important to your ongoing call to be the instructional leader on your campus. Just as we expect our students to “show up” for class, on time and ready to learn, so must we as principals and assistant principals commit to our continuing education.
Please note on the registration form…No added fees for special or extended sessions.
TASSP removed the costs for special and extended sessions held during the Summer Workshop except for the catered events and for the golf tournament. Based on the recommendation from workshop attendees, you can register for the TASSP Summer Workshop and all sessions are open to you. TASSP values your participation and has made this adjustment to the registration costs so that you can spend less to learn more.
So, come early….stay late. It is together that we learn and lead secondary schools in Texas.
Make your hotel reservations and register today! We are excited about seeing you in June.
