Need to verify or print your AEL/ILD or PDAS certificate? The ILD and PDAS Certificate Authority is an electronic system to manage AEL/ILD and PDAS certification. Participants may pay for and/or print their certificates all from this website managed by Region 13 ESC.





Welcome to the leadership page of Accountability and Leadership Solutions. We are committed to providing leadership support for all of the region’s stakeholders, which includes current and aspiring administrators at both the campus and district levels. The department supports traditional/charter districts and campuses in the following ways:



Principals Leadership Network
The Principals Leadership Network is a committee of superintendent-appointed individuals. Members receive current national, state, and local information on all areas supporting principal and campus leadership. The goal of the committee is to identify trends and issues affecting districts, give feedback on services provided by Region 4 ESC, and network with other professionals.

For registration information, please contact Rachel Alex.

Texas Evaluation System Lead Contact Meeting

Dates to Come


Join evaluation lead contacts from area districts and charters as we network together to ensure the successful implementation of the Texas Evaluation Systems. 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 implementing the Texas evaluation systems (both T-TESS and T-PESS) to campus administrators and teachers.



New Administrator Induction

Join an interactive cohort of area leaders and satisfy the Texas Administrative Code required induction period component.

The Texas Administrative Code, 19 TAC Chapter 241.25 (a) states that a principal or assistant principal employed for the first time as a campus administrator (including the first time in the state) shall participate in an induction period of at least one year. Chapter 241.25 (b) states that the induction period should be a structured, systemic process for assisting the new principal or assistant principal in further developing skills in guiding the everyday operation of a school, adjusting to the particular culture of a school district, and developing a personal awareness of self in the campus administrator role. Mentoring support must be an integral component of the induction period.
