To Lead a
Learning Community
P

rincipals are like symphony conductors, skillfully
directing people, data, and processes. Schools
should be run like a business, with the principal as the
CEO. Principals are school managers; they are instructional leaders; they should be entrepreneurial. As the
philosophy of the principalship has shifted over time
and the job has become more complex, NAESP has
been right there at the forefront, shaping standards for
what principals should know and be able to do.
This issue of Principal magazine commemorates the 2019 publication of
NAESP's Leading Learning Communities: Pillars, Practices, and Priorities for Effective
Principals. In its third edition, this hallmark standards document is organized
around three mutually supportive and mutually dependent pillars of the principal's role: building culture, empowering people, and optimizing systems.
The articles in this issue drill down on corresponding practices that range
from engaging with families in multiple generations to using data to assess student growth. They are meant to aid in your leadership development as you strive
to impact educational equity, close achievement gaps, and deliver a safe and
secure learning environment for the communities you serve.
