    The Administrative Leadership Institute (ALI), which dates back to 1908, has been called "the best 24-hour conference in Texas” by leaders in Texas public education and higher education. Each November, the annual conference focuses on a critical issue to help school leaders transform schools to better ensure all children can become successful students and people.

    ALI is an opportunity for informal interaction and sharing among participants, who attend from school districts across Texas. It is a meeting place for friends and a venue for nationally recognized speakers and experts to re-energize those on the front lines educating Texas youth.

    2018 ALI Focus

    State of the State: Leading Transformation

    Join educational leaders from across the state at Texas A&M this fall to explore the ways they are leading transformation in public school districts and build upon the strong ties between past students and future leaders. Bring a team of leaders from your district to experience engaging roundtables at this year's 24-hour conference. Learn from districts involved in creating community-based accountability systems, engaging in next-generation partnerships for student post-secondary readiness, growing their own teacher leaders and building district capacity, and making a difference through advocacy at the local and state levels. Not only will your team gain valuable insight into these bold initiatives, but your team will also have the opportunity to interact directly with innovators to bring transformation to your district. Join us this fall for the combination of learning and networking unique to ALI.

    Who Should Attend

    Superintendents, central office administrators, principals, and campus leaders are all welcome to attend ALI, and are encouraged to attend as a team.
