The Texas Education Agency & ESC-Region 13 have collaborated to design a new professional development training - Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL) - that serves as the mandatory prerequisite to the course designed to prepare administrators for certification as appraisers of teachers(T-TESS). AEL is one of the three components of systems approved in the Commissioner's Rules (AEL, Teacher Appraisal & Administrator Appraisal).
Important Note: In order to receive AEL certification, participants must attend all three days of the Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL) Training within each training series.
*Please ensure your calendar is clear before registering for this series as make-up sessions will not be provided.
**Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL) certification is a mandatory prerequisite for Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS) certification.
