RESOLUTION

Recognizing the month of October 2010 as National Principals Month.

Whereas the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the National Association of Secondary School Principals have declared the month of October 2010 as National Principals Month;

Whereas school leaders are expected to be educational visionaries, instructional leaders, assessment experts, disciplinarians, community builders, public relations experts, budget analysts, facility managers, special programs administrators, and guardians of various legal, contractual, and policy mandates and initiatives, as well as being entrusted with our young people, our most valuable resource;

Whereas principals set the academic tone for their schools and work collaboratively with teachers to develop and maintain high curriculum standards, develop mission statements, and set performance goals and objectives;

Whereas the vision, dedication, and determination of a principal provides the mobilizing force behind any school reform effort; and

Whereas the celebration of National Principals Month would honor elementary, middle level, and high school principals and recognize the importance of school leadership in ensuring that every child has access to a high-quality education: Now, therefore, be it

That the Senate—

(1)

recognizes the month of October 2010 as National Principals Month; and

(2)

honors the contribution of school principals in the elementary and secondary schools of our Nation by supporting the goals and ideals of National Principals Month.
