Division of Talent Development

At Austin ISD, we encourage you to pursue leadership opportunities and we have a robust training program to support your journey.

  • The AISD Urban Education Leadership Academy provides a year-long training for prospective principals and assistant principals. Participants receive training based on AISD’s curriculum and have monthly opportunities to learn from district leaders.
  • Through a special collaboration with AISD, Texas State University offers a master’s program for select AISD teachers working on a principal certification.
  • The AISD Novice Principal Program supports new principals through a new principal institute, and the new principal cohort meets for monthly gatherings.
  • In addition to these programs, AISD also offers a professional learning series for assistant principals during the school year and summer.

AISD has crafted a leadership training experience that incorporates a tailored curriculum, multiple learning modalities and valuable face time with seasoned mentors. At AISD, we actively help you achieve your goals and support your growth as an aspiring leader.
