School Leaders

Promote Principal Leadership

The success of every school and student depends on the effectiveness of school leaders. National Principals Month is one way we can promote the importance of and investments in school leadership. Here are a few ways for you to celebrate your leadership.

Shadowing Visits

Shadowing visits provide a wonderful opportunity for members of Congress and congressional staffers to experience firsthand the role and responsibilities of exemplary principals. It also provides an occasion to highlight the excellence in leadership that principals provide to schools, educators, and students everywhere. Use our template email to invite your legislators to shadow you for a day.

E-cards

Send a fellow principal a free e-card in honor of this month’s celebration. All you have to do it add your message and schedule the date and time for the card to be emailed—we’ll take care of the rest.
