Info. Sessions for Aspiring Principals Scheduled for Nov. 27, Dec. 5

One-year master’s degree program being offered through new University of Houston partnership

November 16, 2012

Do you have what it takes to lead an HISD school?

If so, and you are an HISD educator with at least three years of teaching experience, you should consider attending one of the information sessions being held at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (4400 W. 18th St., 77092).

There, you can learn more about the new partnership between HISD and the University of Houston (.pdf flyer here), which was created to offer aspiring leaders the opportunity to obtain a master’s degree in education with a focus on turnaround leadership.

Graduates of this one-year program will have the business, education, and management skills needed for leading successful urban schools—as well as for obtaining principal certification in the State of Texas.

Classes for the inaugural cohort start in the summer of 2013 and will be led by instructors from UH, HISD, and other experts in education.

Both information sessions will take place from 5 to 6 p.m. in the HMWESC cafeteria. Interested employees are asked to fill out this brief online form.
