Advocacy Update: Tracking ESSA

National Principals Month

As we wrap up National Principals Month, NASSP wants to thank all those who participated in making it such a success. Although the official National Principals Month is over, rest assured that you will still have access to all of the great materials that were created or occurred during it. The website will continue to be active so you can still access the 29 state resolutions that were passed, the recording of the Capitol Hill event, a variety of webinars and many more important resources. While the celebrations are over, it is still extremely important for school leaders to have their voices heard, so please continue to utilize these resources to make your representatives listen!

Take Action on ESEA

It is not too late to send a message to your senators before their Tuesday evening vote, urging them to pass the conference report to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and end the current system of waivers and punitive accountability. Thank you to the hundreds of members who have already contacted their members of Congress in support of reauthorization!
