The Digital Principal of the Year program honored principals who exhibited bold, creative leadership in their drive to harness the potential of new technologies to further learning goals. Applications were submitted directly to NASSP, from which three winners were selected and announced each year. While the Principal of the Year and Assistant Principal of the Year programs recognize school leader success more broadly, Digital Principal of the Year winners specifically demonstrated excellence in the use of technology.
To reflect the changes in education, NASSP is refreshing its recognition programs and will be sunsetting our DPOY program in 2022. We will still recognize and celebrate past winners and rely on them for the unique perspective they bring to this profession.
