Leadership SAISD is a free, 9-month educational leadership development program that prepares aspiring and proven leaders to meaningfully impact San Antonio’s education landscape. Participants develop a nuanced understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities facing school communities with topics such as school finance, policy and advocacy, and educational equity.
Our goal at Leadership SAISD is to empower a critical mass of informed community leaders to take action within a wide variety of fields in order to improve student achievement within our districts. Graduates of Leadership SAISD are equipped and positioned to serve in a number of leadership roles, including Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs); site based decision-making committees; Board of Trustee task forces; non-profit boards and volunteer positions. Moreover, LSAISD graduates have the knowledge and skills to effectively advance the broader discussion around public education within San Antonio.
Leadership SAISD is an independent nonprofit organization that is neither affiliated with, nor governed by, the San Antonio Independent School District.
