LISD Trustee Finalizes Leadership Training

During this fifth and final session, June 30–July 1, school board members in the 2021–22 Leadership TASB class made presentations of their team’s findings following yearlong research. Class participants researched critical issues and their impact on Texas public education. The Leadership TASB class met in conjunction with TASB’s Summer Leadership Institute in Fort Worth. More than 1,000 new and veteran school leaders attended the Institute and received extensive training on every facet of effective board governance, heard keynote
addresses from renowned education experts, and picked up valuable ideas from district
showcases and networking opportunities.
After the graduation ceremony July 1, Leadership TASB participants joined the ranks of
more than 900 school board members statewide who are Leadership TASB alumni.
The 2022 Leadership TASB class, composed of 36 school board members, represents
Texas school districts of all sizes and property wealth. Participants who completed all required
elements of the study program earned Master Trustee status, the highest designation recognized
by TASB. Leadership TASB is sponsored, in part, by H-E-B.
TASB is a voluntary, nonprofit association established in 1949 to serve local Texas
school boards. School board members are the largest group of publicly elected officials in the
state. The districts they represent serve more than 5.4 million public school students.
