Principals Play an Essential Role

 

Board Member Scott M. Schmerelson, also a former principal and the sponsor of the resolution said, “Principals play an essential role in serving as the instructional leader and the chief administrator of a school. Their leadership skills are vital towards the success of our schools and, more importantly, the success of our students.

I commend the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region 16 and Associated Administrators of Los Angeles (AALA) for their continuous support and partnership.”Los Angeles Unified Supports October as National Principals Month Board of Education Recognizes All Principals Who Serve Students in Schools Across Los Angeles Unified
