The only education-focused leadership development program in Bexar County, Leadership SAISD inspires civically minded individuals to become leaders within the San Antonio Education community. Leadership SAISD strives to positively disrupt the education system through their Leadership Development Program and EdChats. The Leadership Development Program is a free nine-month program that provides the resources for local community members to become thought leaders around education. EdChats are community-based events convening all education stakeholders such as caregivers, educators and children to learn about relevant topics, engage in dialogue, and develop awareness of various action steps. Leadership SAISD is guided by placing kids first, learning continuously, pursuing equity, collaborating, and strengthening community.
