Don’t you wish there could be a one-stop shop to receive excellent professional training, earn Commissioner Credit hours, listen to inspiring speakers, learn about the latest educational tools, and enjoy world-class accommodations and food?  Stop wishing – you can get all of that and more at the 2019 TCSA Conference October 28th-30th in San Antonio

The 2019 Conference will feature two inspiring keynote speakers, Laura Vanderkamm and Richard Whitmire.  There will be professional learning opportunities with 74 breakout sessions divided into eight learning strands – Student Success and Learning, Leadership and Coaching, Advocacy and Communications, Finance and Operations, Governance and Law, Marketing and Engagement, Strategic Planning, and Safety and Security. Each session will award Commissioner’s Credit training hours in one of the seven credit categories as spelled out in 19 TAC 100.1102-1105, and school leaders can receive their complete 15-hour training credit update through their attendance at the conference sessions. 

In addition, on Tuesday October 29th we will feature our popular 6-hour board workshop where board members can meet their annual training credit requirement, with targeted governance training in School Finance, Academic Accountability, the Charter School Performance Framework, Health and Safety, Special Populations, and Superintendent Evaluations; all with an emphasis on updates from the 86th legislative session.  Also on Monday afternoon we will provide a two-hour Superintendent Workshop to address hot-button topics directly related to maximizing your effectiveness as a school leader.

A special thanks goes out to our hard-working conference committee members:  Chair Dustin Cox, Harmony; Brenton White, A+ Charter Schools; Julia Wright, MeyerPark Charter School; Jerry Lager, Ki Charter; Christopher Mayes, BMI; Tod Nix, Richard Milburn Academy; Carmen Darville, YES Prep; Don Mills, Braination; and Fred Clarke, Manara Academy.  This esteemed group spent countless hours reviewing breakout session proposals and met on June 11th to finalize their selections.  

We strongly suggest that you register now especially as on-site accommodations are limited.   Stay tuned for further updates and the rollout of the best-ever 2019 TCSA Conference mobile app!
