Each year, Raise Your Hand Texas carefully selects dozens of principals from across the state of Texas to attend weeklong summer programs through the Principals’ Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The sponsorship covers all associated expenses, including program tuition, travel, and hotel stay. Raise Your Hand Texas Program Manager Dr. Andre Morgan oversaw the selection of principals for the 2015 Cohort. On behalf of the organization, Dr. Morgan offers congratulations to each chosen candidate.

Leaders matter. You are critical to growing teachers and students, caring for the future of Texas, and advancing public education every day. You are the linchpin of innovation in Texas schools. We know how important your job is. We see the work you do. That’s why we invest in you.
February 4-6, we hosted the 7th Annual Raise Your Hand Texas Leadership Symposium. Past attendees have reported this conference as the best professional development they receive all year. In correspondence with the legislative session, we hosted the Symposium in Austin and included advocacy elements to complement the instructional leadership and marketing sessions. We will do this every other year and it will be known as the “Campus to Capitol Conference.” School leaders need to understand how the legislative process works and how to be strong advocates for public schools at the state level.
