AUSTIN – Governor Abbott today issued a proclamation announcing that he will convene a third special legislative session at 10 a.m. on Monday, September 20, 2021. The proclamation identifies 5 agenda items for the third Special Session.

Crosby Superintendent selected for new leadership program

Crosby ISD will partner with The Holdsworth Center, an Austin-based nonprofit, to support our superintendent’s leadership through a new 18-month program – the Holdsworth Superintendent Leadership Program.

Superintendent Paula Patterson will be part of the 18-month Superintendent Leadership Program, which is designed to support superintendents as they navigate unprecedented challenges at a critical point in their career – either in the first five years of their superintendency or new to a large district.

Superintendents in the cohort will attend learning sessions at the Campus on Lake Austin to dig into not only essential leadership skills, but content that addresses the unique challenges and opportunities of the superintendent role. They will also receive executive coaching from Holdsworth Superintendents-in-Residence, Dr. Art Cavazos and Dr. Thomas Randle, both recently retired superintendents who have earned the respect of their peers.
