Great schools are led by great principals, and great school districts by great superintendents. There is no better time to honor the leaders who make our schools great than during Week of the School Administrator, March 3-9, 2013.
Research has repeatedly shown that quality school leadership is essential to student success. Those leaders in turn are supported by a network of dedicated professionals, including special education and adult education leaders, curriculum experts, school business officials and classified educational leaders, among many others.
“As the state’s preeminent professional association for education leaders, ACSA has long since promoted the importance of school leadership in our public school system,” said ACSA Assistant Executive Director Julie White. “Leadership truly does have an impact on student learning, and academic achievement is not possible without a skilled, qualified administrator at the helm.”
Because Leadership Matters for California’s public schools, the state of California has declared the first full week in March as the Week of the School Administrator.
