Leadership Matters: Accomplished Principals Bring Results
March 23, 2012 | Philadelphia, Pa.
Effective principals are critical to the success of students, teachers, and entire schools. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is finalizing National Board Certification for Principals, the nation’s first national certification program for accomplished principals. The new certification is designed to develop, recognize, and retain school leaders who advance a collaborative school culture focused on student learning. National Board Certification for Principals builds on the National Board’s 20-year program, National Board Certification for teachers and school counselors. The new certification is based on the nine National Board Core Propositions for Accomplished Educational Leaders, developed in 2009, which capture the essence of what accomplished educational leaders should know and do at a consistently high level. In February 2010, the National Board released the nine Standards Statements for Accomplished Principals, which reflect the nine core propositions and represent professional consensus on the unique practices that distinguish accomplished principals. Pilot testing is currently underway for the new principal certification, which is nearing the final phase of development and testing. Hear from the creators, developers, and other stakeholders involved in the new certification and assessment process, as well as others who have participated in field and pilot testing.
