Walsh Gallegos Treviño Russo & Kyle P.C. training programs are designed to meet the needs of your district. Since 1991, the firm has been approved by the Texas Education Agency as a sponsor for school board member training -- one of the first law firms to be approved. Walsh Gallegos is also approved by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) to provide Continuing Professional Education (CPE) for educators. Our attorneys conduct hundreds of training programs for educators each year and are well known as entertaining and informative speakers at regional, state and national conferences.

EXPERIENCE ON YOUR SIDE.

Our up-to-date training programs are presented by attorneys with firsthand experience and knowledge about the current legal issues confronting Texas school districts. Lawyers from the firm have made presentations at conferences sponsored by the National School Board Association, The Education Law Association, virtually every statewide educational association in Texas (e.g., TASB, TASA, TASBO, TASSP, TEPSA, TCASE, TEDA), all 20 Education Service Centers in Texas, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and statewide organizations in several other states.
