NASSP has declared the week of April 13–17, 2015, as National Assistant Principals Week to honor and recognize the contributions of assistant principals to the success of students in schools across the United States.

State AP of the Year Forum: NASSP will mark National Assistant Principals Week by hosting all of the State Assistant Principals of the Year in Washington, D.C., during the Assistant Principals Forum on April 15–17, 2015. Each year, NASSP honors a winner from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools. From that pool of outstanding administrators, one national winner is chosen.

APs on Capitol Hill: During their stay in Washington, state and national winners will meet with their members of Congress to discuss the many challenges facing school leaders today. The winners will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of networking activities with their peers.

Twitter: Anyone can join in the AP Week conversation on Twitter using #apweek. NASSP will also hold a special #apchat leading up to National Assistant Principals Week. All educators are invited to join this special AP Week chat on Sunday, April 12, 2015, at 8:00–9:00 p.m. (ET).
