The House of Representatives designated this week (April 16- 20, 2012) as National Assistant Principals Week, recognizing the pivotal role assistant principals play in fostering positive learning environments and strengthening building relationships in schools. NAESP believes every elementary and middle school with more than 400 students should employ a full-time assistant principal.

NAESP would like to thank Congresswomen Martha Fudge (D-OH) for introducing H. Res 626 (text of this resolution can be found here), on behalf of NAESP and the National Association of Secondary School Principals. 

Let us know: Does your school have an assistant principal, and how does he or she help you strengthen your school?
