Dr. Robin Ryan, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Superintendent, has been selected as one of only 39 superintendents in Texas to participate in the Future-Ready Superintendents Leadership Institute.
Organized through the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA), the institute is a program to develop and sustain leaders who are willing to expand their leadership beyond the local level and work together to define the future of public education in our state.
“It’s an honor to represent GCISD at the table alongside this group of exceptional leaders and be a part of designing the future of Texas public schools,” Dr. Ryan said. “Our mission at GCISD is to be the BEST and, through our LEAD 2021 strategic plan, and under the guidance of the Public Education Visioning Institute, I believe that one day the state of Texas will be the best in public education.”
The Future-Ready Superintendents Leadership Institute will build upon the work of the Public Education Visioning Institute, which consisted of 35 Texas school superintendents who met for nearly two years to create a new vision of public education in Texas. Their work envisions schools that meet the needs of learners in a more global environment with new expectations that learning be relevant, innovative and progressive. Driving their discussions was a key focus that all children reach their potential, feel safe and free to explore and learn through their natural passions, and their curiosity is cultivated – all of which are key components of GCISD’s LEAD 2021 plan.
Participants in the Superintendents Leadership Institute will gain enhanced capabilities to lead in times of change as well as develop a sustained collaborative network among other principals and help create models of future-ready schools throughout the state.
