Mansfield ISD is one of eight school districts in Texas to be selected as part of the inaugural Lone Star Governance (LSG) Exemplar Cohort.
The purpose of Lone Star Governance is to provide a continuous improvement model for school board members and their superintendents focused intensively on one primary objective—improving student outcomes.
School board members and superintendents in the LSG Exemplar Cohort will commit to a year-long process with the option of an additional one-year extension. During the year, district leadership will receive trainings, attend workshops and be provided other evaluation and implementation support.
“The leadership at these eight school districts are already demonstrating effective governance practices where the success of every student is the focus,” said Commissioner of Education Mike Morath. “As part of the inaugural LSG Exemplar Cohort, the school board members and superintendents in these districts seek to take their efforts to the next level, which can lead to better student outcomes in their communities.”
Cohort members will also be presenting at various regional, state and national conferences in the coming year to share best practices from their experiences to help strengthen leadership in districts statewide.
