Community + Policy Advocacy
As school leaders, TASA members play a crucial role as advocates for public education in Texas — both as ambassadors and as activists. They not only promote the successes of our public schools, but they actively participate in the state’s legislative and public policy processes on issues critical to school districts and the children and communities they serve. TASA members benefit from support that helps them champion initiatives and policy to equip an educated citizenry.
collaboration with stakeholders
The TASA Governmental Relations team helps us maintain the visibility and respect needed to effectively advocate for public schools; they work with legislators and other state leaders as well as other education associations to defend and advance public schools.
education and information
Daily education news and legislative/policy alert emails, comprehensive bill summaries, and a host of other tools and resources keep school leaders up to date on education issues.
focus on transformation
Through our MISSION: School Transformation initiative — a movement that continues to evolve Texas public education into a system that prepares future-ready students — TASA is helping to engage the digital generation with new technologies and learning standards that focus on preparing students to be future-ready. Our School Transformation Network (STN) gives TASA members with district subscriptions to STN access to exclusive transformational learning opportunities and allows them to have a powerful impact on the future of Texas public education.
research and policy analysis
Because we are a statewide organization, we have the resources to conduct the research and policy analysis needed to help school leaders be informed advocates for education.
positive public relations
Through our facilitation of the Texas Teacher of the Year and School Board awards, as well as other recognition programs, TASA provides the opportunity for school leaders to shine the spotlight on individuals in their districts who work tirelessly on behalf of students. And through our publications and social media channels, we share the success stories and good news of school districts across the state.
Member Engagement + Support
TASA members benefit from networks and services that offer mentorship and inspiration.
Network with other school leaders, share ideas, discuss strategies, and collaborate. TASA members benefit from many valuable opportunities — both organized and informal — to connect with colleagues.
Have the latest education news delivered to your email inbox! Digital and print communications including TASA Daily and Capitol Watch Alert keep TASA members up to date on education headlines, legislative/policy news, and legal issues.
