RAISE YOUR HAND TEXAS TO SEND OVER 100 TEXAS PRINCIPALS TO SUMMER INSTITUTES AT HARVARD
Donna Solley, Holiday Heights Elementary, has been selected by Raise Your Hand Texas to attend The Principals' Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education this summer. The Summer Institutes will expose participants to leading national and international experts in the fields of education and leadership.
Participants can choose from one of five distinct learning tracks depending on their area of interest: Redesigning High Schools for Improved Instruction; Charter Schools; Improving Schools: The Art of Leadership; Leadership: An Evolving Vision; and the National Institute for Urban School Leaders. Each Institute lasts for approximately three to seven days beginning June 29 and ending July 24. Raise Your Hand Texas is covering all expenses including travel, hotel and a modest discretionary spending fund.
"We recognize the impact that strong campus leadership can have on the quality of instruction being offered in our schools," said former Lt. Governor Bill Ratliff, a spokesperson for Raise Your Hand Texas. "We are committed to providing ongoing professional development opportunities for our top principals and we are thrilled to be able to send another group of professional educators from Texas to experience the Summer Institutes at Harvard, the gold standard in terms of training."
