Principals are leaders who help shape the future. As leaders of schools, their primary focus is to grow great teachers so that students not only succeed, but excel. The best principals are visionaries who prepare students now for jobs in the future that may not even exist today. In November, the district will honor its principals with a reception, highlighting the six principals who achieved an exemplary performance rating for the 2013-14 school year.
