Lead schools, programs, and departments in a district striving to become a national model by empowering its leaders, instituting systemic change, and graduating every child.





Benefits for leadership

SAISD recognizes that its best future leaders are already members of the SAISD community and has developed a number of programs to identify and prepare the next cohort of teacher leaders, school-based leaders, and district leaders.

The District of Innovation Designation allows autonomy from state-level regulations to deliver instructional and support services in novel ways that improve student educational outcomes. San Antonio ISD chose to pursue this designation to inspire innovative practices and empower educators.
