NAESP 2019-2020 Platform

NAESP Platform 2019-2020

Elementary and middle-level principals work tirelessly on behalf of our nation’s students. Principals’ perspectives on how Pre-K–8 education should function is summarized in the NAESP Platform. NAESP’s advocacy staff works to shape Congress’ and the U.S. Department of Education’s policies based on the belief statements included in the platform document. The platform is reviewed and updated annually and submitted to the NAESP Board of Directors to review in March.

The NAESP Resolutions Committee meet annually to update the statements to accurately reflect the realities of your profession. The results of the 2019-2020's Committee’s diligent work were changes (edits, combinations, and deletions) to 14 resolutions and Introduction. You may view the complete NAESP Platform here.
