About the Panel 

NPNP is dedicated to gathering and sharing the experiences of NAESP members in their first or second year of the principalship in rural, urban, and suburban schools. Findings from the NPNP are distributed quarterly via NAESP’s New Principal Connection report, a valuable resource for early career principals. Panelists participate in four to six online surveys each year on a relevant topic. Each survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete.

The popular New Principal Connection brief which summarizes each survey’s results and highlights early career principals’ best ideas; opportunities to participate in special webinars throughout the year; a personalized National Panelist certificate.

You’ll gain insights into how your experience as a new principal compares to your peers and you’ll get ideas that will help you succeed in your new role.
