Become an LSG Coach
Are you interested in helping school governing teams understand and implement adult behaviors that lead to improved student outcomes? Consider becoming a Lone Star Governance Coach.
Becoming a Lone Star Governance coach is a rewarding, months-long journey that begins with learning about the state assessment and accountability systems; progresses to studying inputs, outputs, outcomes, and progress monitoring; continues with understanding how mindset influences our actions; and ends with successful co-facilitation of an LSG workshop with a partner coach.
The data is clear: good governance relates to higher student performance. The LSG Exemplar Cohort is a one-year program designed to unleash the strategic impact of your board-superintendent team. By the end of your yearlong LSG experience, your governance team will have mastered connecting the dots from mindset to vision, goals, and progress monitoring, leading to improved student outcomes.
The opportunity to submit your letter of interest for the Lone Star Governance (LSG) Exemplar Cohort for the 2023–24 school year is fast approaching. Look for an announcement coming soon.
