Critical Success Factors (CSFs)
Every school has factors that are critical to its success. Identifying a focused number of key areas of improvement can help campuses thrive. Once identified, critical success factors help stakeholders focus on priorities, develop measurable goals, and create a culture of teamwork.
The seven identified critical success factors are foundational elements and serve as key components in school planning.The CSFs are grounded in evidence-based research as connected to the Texas Accountability and Intervention System (TAIS). We provide differentiated trainings that fully support systemic efforts at all levels, including district commitments, and campus trainings with full integration of the critical success factors. All workshops can be further customized as on-site trainings in your district/charter.
Academic Performance: Increasing student academic performance serves as the foundational CSF.

Texas Evaluation System Lead Contact Meeting
January 17, 2017: Session 1264807
Join evaluation lead contacts from area districts and charters as we network together to ensure successful implementation of the new Texas Evaluation Systems that will begin in 2016–17. This is not a training; it is a series of 3 meetings that will allow evaluation lead contacts to share information regarding local policy, practices and procedures.
Additionally, best practices will be shared that assist districts and charters in introducing the new evaluation systems (both T-TESS and T-PESS) to campus administrators and teachers throughout the spring prior to roll-out. A panel of pilot district participants will also share words of wisdom and experience from their implementation during the pilot years.
New Administrator Induction
Join an interactive cohort of area leaders and satisfy the Texas Administrative Code required induction period component.
