Creating better evaluation systems for principals (see NAESP page on principal evaluation) has emerged as a cornerstone of education reform and most states and districts are currently developing and redesigning principal evaluation systems. In response, NAESP, in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), Johns Hopkins University and American Institute for Research, has developed a research-based framework that will serve to shape policy around effective principal evaluations.

To unveil this report, NAESP and NASSP is hosting a Congressional briefing with a panel of leading researchers and principals who will present the key elements of effective principal evaluations and talk about the implications for policy.
