We are thrilled to announce nine outstanding individuals who are successor principals and launching principals of IDEA schools for the 2021-22 school year! They will serve as campus leaders in our San Antonio, El Paso, Greater Houston, Permian Basin, Southern Louisiana and Tampa Bay regions, continuing our mission of college for all children and IDEA’s tradition of academic excellence.
The selected principals will now enter IDEA’s Rhodes Fellowship, a semester-long program that represents the final step of preparation for principalship.
IDEA Public Schools is honored to welcome this dynamic group of leaders who will lead their staff to success and impact the lives of our students for years to come.
