Austin Convention Center
Austin, TX


Welcome to TASA's 2015 Midwinter Conference! We are excited to offer you and your colleagues the opportunity to come together in one place to discuss and share innovative practices in the education of the schoolchildren of this state.

This year's conference offers critical sessions addressing the administrative issues that face school leaders every day. A host of General, Thought Leader, and Concurrent Session speakers will challenge all of us to think in ways we never have and provide direction as we steer our districts down new and innovative paths. To that end, our conference program touches on every aspect of school leadership, including topics like finance, human resource management, instructional leadership, facility planning, and operations, as well as the work of the Texas High Performance Schools Consortium.

The TASA Midwinter Conference features a comprehensive selection of concurrent sessions, including examples of innovative practices in school districts throughout the state, as well as sessions that highlight the collaboration between TASA and other organizations, topics of legal interest, statutory and policy matters, and Texas Education Agency programs. To assist conference attendees in selecting topics of interest as you plan your conference experience, we have included a number of concurrent sessions as part of special strands throughout the conference.
