The Sul Ross State University Educational Leadership Program in Alpine and Clint ISD were recently awarded a $130,000 Principal Preparation Grant from the Texas Education Agency.

The bulk of the grant monies will fund scholarships for Clint ISD teachers seeking a Master’s in Education with Principal Certification at Sul Ross.  An increase of approximately 20 students into the Program is anticipated during the grant’s first year.

According to Program Coordinator Dr. Rebecca Schlosser, “The goal of Principal Preparation Grant partnerships is to have universities and school districts work more closely to ensure principals are exceptionally well-prepared to face the challenges of campus leadership in the 21st Century.”

Schlosser worked with Clint Superintendent Dr. Juan Martinez, Assistant Superintendent James Littleton, Director of Federal Programs for Clint ISD Roberto Flores, and other Clint ISD leaders to prepare the $130,000 grant request.

“Sul Ross wishes to thank the tireless work of Mr. Littleton and Mr. Flores in making this partnership possible,” said Schlosser.  “We hope it will lead to many years of collaborative learning with Clint ISD.”
