Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL)

  • Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL) is organized to facilitate participants' recognition of the connections and relationships between and among the major functions or strands of school leadership, thus the emergence of five conceptual themes:

    • Creating Positive School Culture
    • Establishing and Sustaining Vision, Mission, and Goals
    • Developing Self and Others
    • Improving Instruction
    • Managing Data and Processes

    The seven strands align to the principal standards established by TEA. As compared to the five conceptual themes of AEL, the strands are a more discreet articulation of what successful school leaders must know and be able to do and are interwoven to offer multiple opportunities for participants to engage in self-reflection, dialogue and practical application of skills and concepts designed to address the ever-changing needs of 21st century schools.

    • Team Building                                                           
    • Effective Conferencing
    • Conflict Resolution
    • Goal Setting
    • Data Gathering and Analysis
    • Teacher Coaching and Mentoring
    • Curriculum and Instruction

    AEL is a prerequisite to T-TESS.
    Participants must attend all sessions with no absences or tardies to receive certificate of completion. There are no exceptions.
