School Administrators Conference

Share this

TLA's School Administrators Conference  was initially inspired by First Lady Laura Bush's June 2002 White House Conference on School Libraries. Held as an invitation-only event within the Texas Library Association annual conference, the TLA School Administrators Conference provides an opportunity for superintendents, principals, directors, and academic deans to learn about the important connections between effective school library programs and student success.

The TLA School Administrators Conference inspires, informs, and incites change in the ways Texas schools leverage libraries to engage students, support teachers, advance learning, and prepare well rounded learners for the future. Nationally recognized speakers will address the potential impact of effective school library programs on student achievement, examine critical elements of successful library programs, provide supporting resources and materials, and define a clear, practical call to action for educators to support, grow, and promote school libraries within their own spheres of influence. Woven throughout the conference are opportunities for open dialogue with other educators to guide implementation of explored approaches at the local level.

The 2018 School Administrators Conference will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at the Austin Convention Center, Austin, TX. 

Take a look back at the 2018 SAC. Nominating librarians joined administrators for a facilitated discussion for the final hour of the program for the first time.
