San Antonio ISD is committed to providing opportunities for the growth and advancement of staff members throughout the course of their careers in the District. The District 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 mission of the SAISD Leadership Development Programs is to empower SAISD leaders with knowledge and skills to lead colleagues in affecting transformational changes in the urban school setting of SAISD.

Participants of a Leadership Development Program should expect to:

  • strengthen knowledge and skills aligned to the roles(s) for which the leadership program is preparing them;
  • build a network of peers who share similar interests and goals;
  • provide opportunities for enhanced learning, reflection, and future support or mentorship; and
  • pursue career development options and receive support with the skills needed to be successful in these efforts.

The Leadership Development Programs include ongoing opportunities to participate in professional learning in person, synchronously via Zoom, or in self-paced modules.


    The Leadership Development Academies select a cohort of candidates each spring for a year-long intensive series of experiences aimed at strengthening the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of instructional staff to assume additional roles and responsibilities in campus and district leadership.  The Leadership Development Academies are:

    • Aspiring Principal
    • Aspiring Assistant Principal
    • Aspiring Leadership for Disability Services
    • Academics Leadership
