TASSP/TASC Student Leadership Class / Academy (scroll down)

The Texas Association of Secondary School Principals and the Texas Association of Student Councils sponsor Student Leadership, a TEA-approved class. Developed originally in 1996 and most recently revised in 2022, the course curriculum is available for purchase and implementation in secondary schools. TASSP/TASC serves as the sponsoring organization with TEA, and the course may be offered for ½ to 1 state elective credit. Schools must purchase the curriculum through TASC and complete the TASSP/TASC Participant Agreement to offer this versatile course as state credit. The curriculum may also be purchased as a supplemental resource for other classes or educational purposes. Licensing to offer the course for state credit is provided per individual campus (school).

The revised curriculum includes in each chapter course TEKS, activities to teach key concepts and web-based resources. The curriculum and web-based resources to accompany the course are provided via PDF. The revised curriculum also includes a Curriculum Supplement (100 pages of leadership lessons developed by leadership teachers.)
