To the Editor,

School principals are the glue that keeps it all together when there is a crisis, when an incident of bullying or harassment occurs, when a parent is upset, when the budget needs adjusting, or, most importantly, when kids are not learning.

We need help in identifying high quality school principals who have made a difference for their students and schools by shaping a vision of academic success for all students, by creating a climate hospitable for education, by cultivating leadership in others, by improving instruction and by managing people, data, and processes to foster school improvement.

Yearly, at our August Leadership Academy, we award Principal of the Year awards to deserving elementary, middle, and high school principals, as both a way to recognize them and inspire others to emulate their actions.

Nominations will be accepted until March 7, but why wait? Nomination forms and criteria for selection are at vpaonline.org or by calling (802) 229-0547.
