Become an Advocate

NASSP is the leading organization and voice for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals, and school leaders from across the United States, NASSP connects and engages school leaders through advocacy, research, education, and student programs. Our goal is to advocate on behalf of the nation’s 115,000 school leaders to ensure the success of each student. As such, we believe it is our duty to bring the issues of the principalship to the halls of Congress, the U.S. Department of Education, the White House, and the national news media. Together, NASSP, school leaders, and our advocates nationwide play a vital role in crafting federal, state, and district policies that support the achievement and success of every student. It is critical that these decisions are informed by the experience and expertise of the nation’s school leaders.
