NASSP Board of Directors Call for Nominations Is Open

Last year, the NASSP Board of Directors adopted new bylaws that allow active members in good standing who are principals or assistant principals to step forward as board of director candidates. The board is competency-based and seeks a wide variety of candidates. Diversity, equity, and inclusion will be a priority in the selection of directors. Would you like to take a more active role in NASSP governance by serving as a director? The call for nominations is open until May 17. Submit your nomination at

Celebrate Unlimited Leadership This NSLW

When your student leaders were faced with new and unique challenges this year, they rose to meet those obstacles and worked to support their school communities. Join us April 18–24 to help celebrate that boundless potential and innovation during National Student Leadership Week (NSLW) with our theme, “Leadership Unlimited.” Coordinate with your advisers on ways to celebrate your student leaders—share stories on our National Student Leadership Map, send thank-you e-cards, or host a celebration during the week. And don’t forget that April 21 is Activity Adviser Appreciation Day. Recognize the support and encouragement advisers provide in helping student leaders discover their full potential. Visit for resources to show your appreciation to students and the advisers who guide them.

Go All in at NPC21

When faced with hurdles, school leaders everywhere worked together, drew strength from one another, and ultimately proved that no challenge was too strong to turn them from their mission to provide the best education possible. School leaders are invited to continue that momentum at the 2021 National Principals Conference, where they will be inspired to innovate, fight for equity, and cultivate wellness in education. Mark your calendar for July 14–16, and be prepared to go all in at NPC21! Visit for updates about this year’s event.
