Mesquite ISD is among six school districts within Texas to earn selection into The Holdworth Center’s five-year partnership to build strong leadership. This partnership will be focused upon helping public school districts grow their pipeline of inspiring leaders so that teachers thrive and students excel on every campus.
The six districts are Mesquite ISD (Dallas-Fort Worth), Aldine ISD and Spring ISD (Houston area), Harlingen CISD (Rio Grande Valley), Judson ISD (San Antonio) and Lockhart ISD (Central Texas). Holdsworth staff selected the six districts based upon willingness and ability to change, as well as 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.
“We are extremely honored and excited for the opportunities ahead to develop our educational leaders,” said Superintendent Dr. David Vroonland. “In the end, this training will help us forward the education of our MISD students. And along with our other district cohorts, we will forward the education of children across the great state of Texas."
