Trinity University is proud to offer professional learning opportunities to the San Antonio education community that are value-added to the ongoing support and development that you provide to the professional staff in your districts. Your district’s annual membership in the Center for Educational Leadership and some continued philanthropic support provide the funds so that we can continue to offer excellent programs for your district administrators and teachers. The fee each district pays is based on the size of the district as measured by student enrollment.
Please take advantage of as many of the following offerings as you can and encourage your staff to join us for these learning opportunities as well. We are grateful for your partnership and participation and welcome your ideas and feedback on our programming at any time. We hope to see you and educators from your district at our events in the near future. For additional information, contact the Center for Educational Leadership at cel [at] trinity.edu.
