RI High School Principal of the Year
Each year RIASP selects a Rhode Island High School Principal of the year who then becomes eligible for consideration as the National High School Principal of the Year.
The NASSP National Principal of the Year award program annually recognizes outstanding school leaders who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students. These principals are acknowledged by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession. The program honors school principals who have demonstrated excellence in collaborative leadership; curriculum, instruction, and assessment; and personalization.
Anyone may nominate an eligible principal – a superintendent, a principal, a teacher, a parent, a student.
2010 - Patricia DiCenso, Rogers High School
In 2016, the decision to chose one (1) Secondary Principal of the Year was made rather than having one winner in the Middle School category and one winner in the High School category and this will be the procedure going forward.
