  • TASA Relaunches Mission: School Transformation Website
    TASA has relaunched our Mission: School Transformation website at www.futurereadytx.org. The site, intended to be a resource for those interested in pursuing the goals of digital integration, community-based accountability, student-centered learning and more, has been moved to a new platform and given a new look that aligns with the visual identity TASA introduced in January. (The main TASA website at tasanet.org is also undergoing a rebuild; stay tuned on that!) For now, please explore the new Mission: School Transformation site to see how districts across the state are working to prepare future-ready graduates and access resources that may be helpful to your district.
