Registration and Continental Breakfast
Program (includes a 15-minute break)
The Small School District Seminar is designed for schools with 999 or fewer students and focuses on how small systems across the state implement creative solutions to overcome the significant challenges small schools face and leverage the incredible advantages small schools have to offer.
The 2023 Seminar will honor the unique characteristics of the attending small school districts and board members (the smallest, furthest, longest-serving, newest, most unique programs, etc.), before digging into ways to best lead and serve small schools.
The morning will include a Board Member panel from a variety of small districts discussing effective board leadership, followed by a panel of Superintendents exploring some of the best ways create and carry out a vision for the district.
The seminar will conclude with three district spotlights focusing on some of the issues most prevalent in small schools: teacher recruitment and retention, creative strategies for funding, expansion of course offerings and more.
The 2023 Spotlight Districts include: O’Donnell ISD (296 students), Marlin ISD (882 students) and Cumby ISD (435 students).
