 We believe that a powerful, well-informed network will transform education in Greater Houston. In everything that we do, A+ connects education stakeholders – teachers, administrators, community leaders, families and students – with peers, mentors, ideas and resources.

Our State of…panel discussions provide Houston with a local context as we discuss next steps for our city’s education system.  Our panel discussions offer a breadth of voices that highlight and demonstrate what is happening locally in our schools.  It is these local leaders and innovators that will move Houston forward to its best future.  Inspired by expert panelists and the support they provide, educators, parents and community members leave events well-armed, well informed and well supported to impact education in Houston.

Invite your parents, coordinators, principals, specialists
