Congratulations Principals! Print

 

Mrs. Rhoda Harris (Principal, Stewart Elementary) and  Mr. Curt Mayer (Principal, Junior High)  have been selected in the first training ever to be Nationally Certified Administrators.  They are in a group of 50 in Iowa to be involved in this training. In order to be selected as a member of the first class of principals to participate in National Board Certification for Principals, principals applied for the class and had to meet three requirements of participation-degree, experience and licensure. After receiving applications for the class, a balanced sample of practicing principals encompassing a range of various characteristics, were selected.

National Board Certification for Principals is the first national certification program for accomplished school-based administrators. This certification defines and validates the requirements that identify accomplished, effective, and results-oriented principals while supporting excellence, motivation, and prestige within the profession.
The Principal Certification process is both interactive and systems-based to ensure that relevant site-based evidence is captured and that it is being demonstrated by the principal through everyday practical application.
