ETSPRA is made up of East Texas Regions 6, 7 and 8. ETSPRA members meet 4-6 times per year, and share information through email and a shared Google Drive.
As East Texas is a large region, a combination of virtual and in-person meetings will allow us to build relationships, host one meeting per year that is local to each region, plus work in some virtual meetings to help our busy schedules. Hosting at the Region ESC’s will allow us to have distance learning set up for those who can’t attend in person due to schedule or distance.

SPRINT is the TSPRA chapter for Greater North Central Texas, serving members in ESC Regions 9, 10 and 11.
Every other month, members are invited to a large-group seminar that includes a “big idea” focus in a central location. Then, in the months in between seminars, SPRINT holds simultaneous sub-regional meetings that are closer to members’ home districts.
Members also receive updates regularly via the SPRINT in Action! e-newsletter and the SPRINT private Facebook group.
We are going back to the alternating model of full group and sub-regional groups to accommodate our members. Meetings will be in-person with a summary of key takeaways from the program portion provided to all members. Here are our meeting dates:
