  • Development of professional relationships with cohort members in other districts
  • Face-to-face contact with experts in all fields related to administrative roles
  • Opportunities to network with aspiring and current administrators

Customer Testimonial

“The ESC Region 12 principal program was a great experience for me. I liked the face-to-face instruction. I think the dialogue you have with instructors is huge in preparing you to become a school administrator.”

Kevin Johnson, principal in Lorena ISD
