The NASSP Policy & Advocacy Center is fueled by the grassroots activism of thousands of principals, school leaders, educators, and citizen advocates across the country. Our advocates stand up for federal and state policy that supports education leaders and enables them to create great schools that provide quality education for all students.

They work in collaboration with NASSP and lawmakers to promote and support federal, state, and local policy that will benefit students, educators, and school leaders.
