National Principals Month (NPM) is a time for advocacy and action from school leaders and those who support them. Using NPM as a catalyst, we can capture the attention of local, state, and federal elected officials and enlighten them about the growing challenges that principals and public schools are facing today.
The need for another federal COVID-19 relief package is urgent. Since the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March, national education groups have advocated that at least $175 billion for K–12 schools be included in an additional federal COVID-19 relief package. Experts have consistently agreed that at least this level of funding is needed to support schools now and to prepare for looming state and local revenue shortfalls on the horizon. But Congress has yet to pass another bill, and schools around the country are already facing budget cuts, a lack of resources, and many tough decisions in the weeks and months ahead.
Effect positive change and advocate for principals across America by asking Congress to take action now! With just a few clicks, you can send your message to lawmakers and make a difference in the principalship.
