Honor your school principal on October 21

Principals Day is Oct. 21 this year.
The United States Congress has declared October as “National Principals Month” and Governor Bruce Rauner has proclaimed October 21 as “Principals Day” in Illinois. Likewise, school boards should join in celebrating these dedicated professionals in their school districts.

Local school boards are encouraged to adopt a resolution to recognize their schools’ principals at their next school board meeting. It takes a team to build a high quality education environment in our schools. Teachers, parents, board members, and administrators are working together to provide the best future possible for our children. In many cases, it is the school principal that leads this team day-to-day.

A sample resolution is available for local boards of education on our website. Upon approval, please send a copy to Alison Maley at the Illinois Principals Association by email at
