2022 National Principals Month Policy Briefing
During this joint briefing of NAESP, AFSA, and NASSP, education leaders and policymakers will discuss the contributions of outstanding school leaders to both policy and practice and the most pressing issues facing schools today.
Join representatives from NAESP, the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) for the 2022 National Principals Month policy briefing. Panelists will discuss the contributions of outstanding school leaders to both policy and practice and the most pressing issues facing schools and their leaders. Education policymakers, including members of Congress and senior officials from the U.S. Department of Education, also will take part in the discussion.
This briefing gives school leaders a seat at the table to discuss issues that directly affect them and their faculty and staff, students, and school communities. Aligned with the National Principals Month theme of principal wellness, panelists will dive into the current state of K-12 education, how to enact solutions to address growing educator shortages and the professional teacher and school leader pipeline, and ways to improve mental health support for students and educators.
