Allen ISD Leadership Academy
Allen ISD Leadership Academy is designed to provide community participants a comprehensive overview of the school district by department and district leadership. By educating our community members about the workings of the school district, we will create a resource pool from which to draw for participants in district planning, district and campus improvement teams and other district/community activities. In addition, it will serve as comprehensive initial training for those interested in serving as a school board trustee. The objective is to provide information as well as an opportunity to ask questions in an interactive format.
The structure of Allen ISD Leadership Academy is a full day, once-a-month workshop for six months. This format will include cabinet members providing an overview of their area of responsibility with some department directors presenting their respective department processes and procedures, and providing more detail regarding their specialized programs and initiatives. It will also include tours of several district facilities. All materials including presentations will be uploaded into a digital file that participants will access during the meetings.
The initial meeting will include a greeting and overview of the schedule and expectations for participants provided by Superintendent Dr. Scott Niven. He will present the Allen ISD Mission, Vision and Strategic Plan.
The academy culminates in recognition of the program graduates at the April 2020 board meeting. Those graduates will then be included in a database of community members who may be called upon to support the district's efforts to include informed, interested community members in strategic planning, redistricting, district and campus improvement teams, focus groups and other planning committees.
Apply for the Allen ISD Leadership Academy: Class III. Applications open until Aug. 31.
