New IDEA Principals Announced

We are thrilled to announce eight outstanding individuals who will become principals of IDEA schools during the 2020-21 school year.  These leaders will serve as campus leaders in our Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, Southern Louisiana, Tarrant County, and Rio Grande Valley regions, continuing our mission of college for all children.         

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.  

Congratulations to our newest IDEA principals!
