Get your master’s with new program

If you aspire to lead and see yourself as an assistant principal and the only thing standing in the way is a master’s degree and principal certification, Dallas ISD can help.

The LEAD department is excited to announce that the district is launching a new master’s degree partnership with Texas A&M Commerce. The Impact Leaders Institute is a master’s degree program in which candidates will earn their Master’s in Educational Leadership and also become eligible to apply for principal certification.

This program is designed for educators who do not currently have their principal certification and Master’s in Educational Leadership and have the passion and commitment to lead in an AP position for the 2022-2023 school year.

Highlights of this program include:

o    Concentration in equity and social justice leadership

o    Course content developed in partnership with Dallas ISD

o    2-year program with a year-long campus-based residency in the 2nd year

o    Intensive coaching support during the residency year

o    Face-to-face classes at a central Dallas location

o    Potential for up to 50% reimbursement of university tuition costs

A&M Commerce and the LEAD team will be hosting two information sessions via Zoom on Thursday, Aug. 19, and Monday, Aug. 23, from 4:30 to 5:30 pm. If you are interested to learn more about this innovative and rigorous program, please RSVP at the following link:
