From the Legal Digest Law Conference and the annual Jostens Night of the Stars honoring our Texas Heroes to the Friday closing general session, you will not want to miss the TASSP 2018 Summer Workshop. We believe that principals, assistant principals, directors, teachers, and district administrators are best-positioned to ensure uninterrupted years of excellence in instruction for every student. And thus, TASSP builds research-based and practical professional development programs that promote the capacity to create innovative solutions to ever-changing educational needs and personal interests of a diverse student population. Commit today. Bring a team from your district, your graduate class, region service center, and more to this highly-regarded TASSP Summer Workshop. Invest personally in your professional growth and life-long learning.

At TASSP’s Summer Workshop you’ll have the chance to:
• GAIN insight into current and changing trends for the 21st-century campus
• HEAR from world-renowned speakers that guarantee to inform and inspire
• LEARN valuable leadership skills and best practices applicable to the field of education
• CONNECT with peers & corporate partners from all across the state of Texas

The 2017 Summer Workshop broke all attendance records since the start of the association.  The only reason this number matters is that it represents the number of educators who turn to TASSP for training. You can too. So register and save the date, June 13-15, 2018, and plan to join us for the Summer Workshop at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas!

Come early...stay late. It is together that we learn and lead secondary schools in Texas to high levels of achievement!
