Holdsworth Center & CHISD

The Cedar Hill Independent School District is one of just six school districts in Texas this year to be selected for a five-year partnership with The Holdsworth Center, a non-profit organization started by H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt. It is a five-year strategic partnership that will help the district grow its own bench of strong, skilled leaders who create conditions in which teachers thrive and scholars get the tools they need to succeed. All programming and support is covered at no cost through the generosity of the H-E-B Chairman and other philanthropic supporters.

That includes:

  • Embedding Holdsworth District Support Team staff in each district for five years to help central office leaders design, implement and sustain their own leadership development systems
  • Delivering two-year District and Campus Leadership Programs for multiple groups of central office and campus leadership teams 
  • Providing districts with robust tools to measure district-wide culture and staff engagement and better understand students’ social-emotional learning.
