Principals Critical to PreK-3rd


As more elementary school principals become responsible for children in PreKindergarten, as well as Kindergarten and the early grades, policymakers and educators are recognizing the critical importance of principals in leading effective schools that improve student achievement.

A new report, Building and Supporting an Aligned System: A Vision for Transforming Education Across the Pre-K-Grade Three Years, by the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) Foundation's Task Force on Early Learning, offers ten recommendations for building an aligned system of early learning for children from age three to eight. Recommendations include funding, federal and state policy integration, workforce development, and standards and assessments.
