The NAESP publication Leading Learning Communities: Standards for What Principals Should Know and Be Able to Do is recognized as the performance guideline for principal practice. Written and designed as a guide to provide content, tools, and resources principals can use to meet individual and school-wide goals, Leading Learning Communities defines six standard practice areas that principals should comprehend and be capable of implementing in their schools.

In the landmark report, Vision 2021: Transformations in Leading, Learning, and Community, NAESP charted an ambitious path to lead advocacy and support for elementary and middle-level principals. NAESP's vision looks to 2021, the year the Association will celebrate its 100th anniversary, and clearly defines the core work of principals and of the Association.
