Apply to New Aspiring Principals Program by September 30

Two-year master’s degree program being offered through new University of St. Thomas partnership

August 02, 2011

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 applying for the district's new principal development program. Created by the Houston Independent School District and the University of St. Thomas (UST), the program is designed to offer aspiring leaders the opportunity to obtain a master’s degree in business administration with a focus on education.

Graduates of this two-year program will have the business, education, and management skills needed for running successful urban schools—as well as for obtaining principal certification.

Classes for the inaugural cohort start this fall and will be taught by professors from both UST’s Cameron School of Business and the Graduate School of Education.

The deadline to submit an application is Friday, September 30, 2011.
