THE NEWS MAGAZINE
FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION IN TEXAS
68 Years and Counting
Since 1954, Texas School Business has published stories for and about Texas educators and the districts they serve. Considered an institution in the world of public education for its insightful writing and positive message, Texas School Business is a staple among school leadership teams across the state.
Now exclusively online, Texas School Business is the only bimonthly magazine for administrators in Texas’ 1,200-plus public schools.
Each new issue is emailed to all members of the Texas Association of School Administrators, which has published the magazine since 2014, and other subscribers. Readers include school superintendents, chief business officers, personnel directors, central office administrators, principals, association executives, and school board members in Texas public schools.
In Each Issue
Texas School Business is known for providing the “who’s news” in Texas public schools. Each issue is packed with articles on current issues in Texas public education, profiles of Texas educators, photos from education association conferences and events, personnel announcements from districts across the state, and regular columns.
Texas School Business celebrates the professional accomplishments of Texas public school leaders! If your district has hired a new administrator or promoted someone from within, or if a school leader you know has won a professional award, email us and we will include it in the “Who’s News” section.
In the Spotlight
Texas School Business shines the spotlight on a Texas public school educator in every issue. If you know a thought leader or innovator working in our Texas public schools, let us know.
Student Voices is a regular section that provides an opportunity for students of all ages to share their experiences in Texas K-12 public schools.
In each issue, an administrator or fine arts teacher writes The Arts column, sharing success stories and best practices from any branch of art education.
Representatives from any Texas regional education service center are welcome to submit a Regional View column to showcase a successful program or service in their area or speak to a trend in public education and how their ESC is responding.
