The NASSP Principal of the Year program recognizes outstanding middle level and high school principals who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students, as well as making exemplary contributions to the profession. Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Department of State Office of Overseas Schools (DoSOS), and the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) select one middle level or high school principal to represent their state. NASSP will honor all State Principals of the Year at a recognition event this month in Crystal City, VA. Principal Leadership salutes the state winners and their leadership.
