Campus Leadership Program - Cohort 2

The program represents the next phase of deeper engagement within the Center’s existing seven partner districts. The five-year process aimed at building a strong, world-class talent pipeline and leadership development system within each district began a year ago with the superintendent and five other leaders from central office.

Earlier this month, 42 leaders from seven districts across Texas graduated from Holdsworth's first two-year District Leadership Program. These leaders have invested countless hours in growing their personal leadership to effect change in their districts, and we couldn't be more proud of their progress. We can't wait to continue supporting them through the remainder of the Holdsworth partnership!

Launching a two-year program designed for sitting principals and their teams. The core focus has three main leadership objectives:

  • Teacher development
  • Individual growth plans
  • Campus transformation

In July 2018, Holdsworth created the first cohort of the group’s Campus Leadership Program.  Members of the Campus Leadership Program I Cohort included: South Grand Prairie High School, Jackson Middle School, Eisenhower Elementary School, and Williams Elementary School.

Now, we are please to announce the members of the Campus Leadership Program 2 Cohort include: Dubiski Career High School, Young Men’s Leadership Academy at Kennedy Middle School, School for the Highly Gifter, and Bonham Early Education School.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas and founded by Charles Butt, a lifelong advocate for public education, the Holdsworth Center offers world class training and leadership development to school districts selected to participate through a generous multi-year investment. Named after Charles’ mother, Mary Elizabeth Holdsworth Butt, an educator and dedicated philanthropist, the Center’s goal is to successfully support and develop the leaders of the more than 1,200 school districts in Texas and the thousands of campus leaders in the state to improve, over time, the quality of education offered to every child in every classroom.
