JoAnn D. Bartoletti is executive director of NASSP, a 25,000-member professional organization for principals, assistant principals, and aspiring leaders in middle level and high schools.
Prior to assuming leadership of NASSP in 2011, Bartoletti was the executive director of the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association (NJPSA) for 20 years, during which time she revolutionized the product, service, and professional development offerings for the organization’s 7,400 member administrators and raised the profile of New Jersey administrators in public policy circles. During her tenure, Bartoletti partnered with the state department of education on a nontraditional principal certification program that greatly expanded the pool of competent school leaders by enabling professionals with advanced degrees in areas other than education to become principals.
Prior to her tenure at NJPSA, Bartoletti spent 15 years as assistant principal and principal at West Windsor-Plainsboro (NJ) High School, which was ranked as one of the top 10 schools in New Jersey.
