The 2015 National Principal
of the Year Finalists

The NASSP National Principal of the Year program recognizes outstanding middle level and high school principals who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students as well as demonstrating exemplary contributions to the profession.

Selection Process

Each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Department of Defense Education Activity select one middle level and one high school principal to represent their state. 

From these state winners, six finalists (three middle level, three high school) are named as contenders for the National Principal of the Year award. The NASSP National Principal of the Year is selected from among the finalists and receives a $3,000 grant. The finalists receive a $1,500 grant.

Recognition

NASSP honors all State Principals of the Year at the Principal’s Institute held each year in Washington, DC. The Institute not only salutes the principalship but also provides a forum for honorees to advocate for education and share best practices and expertise.
