The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is offering school boards $10,000 to engage in a rigorous, one-year program to institute board practices demonstrated to improve student outcomes.

The opportunity to submit your letter of interest for the Lone Star Governance (LSG) Exemplar Cohort for the 2022–23 school year has been extended to Friday, April 8, 2022, to allow governance teams sufficient time to evaluate the opportunities and responsibilities.

The data is clear: good governance relates to higher student performance. The LSG Exemplar Cohort is a one-year program designed to unleash the strategic impact of your board-superintendent team. By the end of your yearlong LSG experience, your governance team will have mastered how to connect the dots between vision, goals, and progress monitoring to improve student outcomes. 

All school district and charter school governance teams are eligible to participate. Resources and support available to boards chosen to participate in the cohort are described in the attachment below. 

The Texas Education Agency is here to help your governance team collaborate more effectively and with greater focus on systems and processes that reflect the values and accomplish the vision of your communities. Selected district and charter boards will be eligible for up to $10,000 to cover LSG cohort expenses, but only ten spots are available. 

Don’t miss this opportunity. Submit your letter of interest (attachment below) by Friday, April 8, 2022.
