As the third-fastest growing economy in the nation, San Antonio is rising. It’s hardly coincidence that its schools are, too. Districts across the city rank among the best in the state. San Antonio Independent School District is one of the fastest improving in Texas.

To sustain this progress, we need to support the people who work day in and out to make it real. When it comes to opening and growing great schools, this means ensuring our educators and leaders have the skills and experience necessary to set clear and ambitious goals and overcome innumerable challenges.

That is why we are optimistic about the creation of the Trinity University School Design Network. This new fellowship and incubator program will give educators and leaders the training, skills and experience they need to successfully build and open innovative public schools. This network, which will launch with $5 million from the Walton Family Foundation, is the first incubator of its kind embedded in an accredited higher education institution.
