Access to Resources & Best Practices for Principals
Award-winning publications, including Principal magazine, published 5 times a year. Best Practices for Better Schools, a series of online white papers, presents ideas, programs, and techniques principals have implemented in their own schools.
A Champion and Influence in Washington, DC
NAESP’s advocacy agenda tracks education-related news, legislation, and policy decisions in Congress, the White House, the U.S. Department of Education, and other federal agencies with the goal of representing the needs and interests of principals nationwide. Members receive email updates.
A National Network of Your Peers
Interact with more than 20,000 peers who share the complexities, rewards, and challenges of being a principal. Connect through social media, including NAESP’s new Principal2Principal proprietary online community, and the Principals’ Office Blog at www.naesp.org.
Free webinars for members on hot topics in education for principals, such as the Common Core, special access to learning tools on PD 360, and reduced registration rates for the world-class NAESP Annual Conference and Expo.
Professional Liability & Legal Benefits Program
The National Association of Elementary School Principals’ in-dues professional liability plan with legal assistance benefits is the solution to uncertain or inadequate liability coverage. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that if your school district doesn’t have sufficient coverage or refuses to defend you, your back-up plan is in place. Your association’s affiliation with the Trust for Insuring Educators (TIE) makes this valuable member benefit possible. Your in-dues plan pays up to $2 million for damages arising from professional liability and employment liability lawsuits. It pays defense costs in addition to the liability limit for professional liability lawsuits.
