5 Things: March/April 2020

The work of a principal is never done. You do it all, and you love it. But even principals require support. We want to keep you in the know about how your Association is serving you while you serve kids. Here are five things you need to know about:

Supporting early learners.

Through a new formalized partnership with the Office of Head Start, NAESP will play a role in improving the transition of Head Start kids into elementary school. Together, we’ll identify helpful practices and offer guidelines to support collaborative relationships between early childhood and elementary school educators. Learn more

Ending veteran homelessness.

NAESP’s American Student Council Association and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs joined forces for the second year in a row for the End Veteran Homelessness Challenge.
