Take Action!

One of the most exciting times of the year here at Raise Your Hand Texas® is during the annual leadership symposium. Months of meticulous preparation and setup unfold into two days of fellowship, presentations, breakout sessions, and dialogue on all things public education, with local, state, national, and global emphasis.

Internationally renowned experts, Ivy League professors, and other accomplished professionals take to stages to share their expertise on topics ranging from the science and secrets of powerful storytelling to educational equity and excellence to strategies for addressing low-performing schools. The experience is interactive and motivational, and it delivers the latest data, best practices, and most innovative concepts in the world of public education today. At the end of the conference, each attendee is awarded a certificate of completion and accrues professional development hours.

The Leadership Symposium is an intense professional development conference, open to Raise Your Hand® alumni and VIPs who are currently serving as campus principals or in senior education leadership positions. We regret that we cannot extend invitations to alumni who have retired or transitioned from education leadership roles.

2019 Symposium

The 11th annual symposium provides a platform for educators to network with one another and exchange ideas and best practices; to share stories and experiences from your time in the field working with students; to learn from the thought leaders in education; and to connect with your legislators at the capitol. In each of these instances, we ask you to Raise Your Voice.
