TAAPS hosts an annual conference for school heads, administrative leadership, board members, and key faculty of its member schools. This event is the one chance each year for us to connect with each other and develop the diverse community that TAAPS represents. The association as a whole benefits from the participation of its individual schools, and each participant gains value from the professional development and networking opportunities at the conference.
All member schools are required to be represented at the Annual Conference, and all school heads are generally expected to attend. Schools are also encouraged to invite faculty and administrative teams to participate in the conference to earn professional development credits. School staff members that attend as groups always appreciate the chance to process the experience and consider new school improvement ideas together. Last year, we hosted monthly sessions from January - May that provided continuing education credit. We are still assessing whether to host the conference virtually in January 2022 or monthly sessions again this year.
