Join Our Campaign and Tweet to Your Member of Congress

In order to raise awareness of the need for more professional development for principals and assistant principals, AFSA, together with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), has launched the #PD4Principals campaign.

We strongly encourage you to take a picture with one of our campaign posters and tweet the picture with the hashtag (#PD4Principals) to your representatives in Congress.

AFSA,  NASSP and NAESP are continuing our collective efforts to ensure the voice of school leaders is heard by Congress in the reauthorization of ESEA. Together, we have proposed that Congress require that no less than 10 percent of Title II funds be dedicated to professional development for principals and assistant principals.

Please participate because it is YOUR voice that will get this critical message heard by Congress.

A list of Congress members’ Twitter handles can be found here.
