The Learning Partnership designates October to honour the vital role of principals as drivers of excellence in public education

Toronto, ON, September 29, 2016 – Great principals make great schools and have a profound impact on a school’s students, teachers and the community as a whole.

The Learning Partnership is proud to announce October as National Principals’ Month in Canada to recognize and raise awareness about the vital role of principals in public schools.

Throughout October, communities across Canada are invited to celebrate the achievements of exceptional principals and the impact they have in driving education excellence. Share your stories online with photos, videos and tributes to principals who are making a difference using the #OutstandingPrincipals hashtag.

“Principals are linchpins of their schools,” says Akela Peoples, President and CEO of The Learning Partnership. “They are educators, managers and leaders in their communities and we recognize their indispensable contributions in building and leading teams of great teachers and positively impacting student achievement and success.”

The Learning Partnership invites communities across Canada to nominate remarkable principals to be honoured as one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals, the only nationally recognized award and executive leadership training program for principals in Canada.
