“We are excited about participating in Holdsworth’s leadership program. The success of any organization depends on the strength of its leaders,” said Aldine ISD Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney. “Through the program, we hope to learn new and innovative ways to build leadership capacity in our district and campus leaders. Those skills will be used to attract and retain highly effective leaders at all levels.”
Joining Aldine ISD are Spring ISD, Mesquite ISD (Dallas-Fort Worth area), Harlingen CISD (Rio Grande Valley), Judson ISD (San Antonio) and Lockhart ISD (Central Texas).
With the announcement of the second cohort, the Holdsworth Partnership now extends to 13 public school districts. By the end of the partnership, more than 1,400 educational leaders across 277 schools in Texas will have been impacted.
Holdsworth staff selected the districts based upon their willingness and ability to change, as well as a level of commitment to growing and developing a pipeline of leaders. To ensure a diverse cohort, staff also considered each district’s student population and geographic location.
Any Texas public school district with a student population of 6,000 or more was eligible to apply through a written application, which was followed by in-depth site visits to 14 finalist districts.
“We look forward to investing in and supporting district and campus leaders in these six systems as they work to grow as leaders, strengthen schools and drive excellent and equitable results for every student,” said Dr. Lindsay Whorton, president of The Holdsworth Center. “We are grateful to every district who applied. Selecting only six districts was extremely difficult, and through our visits, we were inspired by and optimistic about the excellent work being done in schools across Texas.”
The Holdsworth Partnership is centered on two core investments in leadership at the district and campus levels.
