National Principal of the Year 2015 Logo

State principals of the year from around the country came together September 15-18 in Washington, D.C., for NASSP’s annual Principals Institute. Not only did principals get to meet and connect with each other, but they also got the opportunity to meet with their members of Congress to discuss education policy that affects their schools. Visit www.nassp.org/poy to learn more about the Principal of the Year program.
