SAISD celebrates National Principals Month


San Antonio  ISD  Board  of  Trustees  is pleased  to  join  other  Boards  of  Education  across  the  United  States  in  proclaiming  October  as National  Principals’  Month  beginning  October  12,  2020  through  October  30,  2020 . The District encourages the  citizens  of  SAISD  to  join  in  the  celebration  of  National  Principals’  Month  by thanking  all  school  administrators  for the  care  and concern they  show  for our children.  


SAISD is honored to employ who we believe to be the strongest and most innovative cohort of leaders in the state of Texas. Our principals not only set the academic tone for their schools, they also work hand-in-hand with our teachers to create standards, develop virtual and in-person curriculum goals, maintain health and safety procedures, and accomplish a list of countless other tasks during these unprecedented times. 

This 2020-2021 school year is unlike any school year we have ever experienced. With the COVID-19 pandemic in the forefront of our minds, our principals have gone above and beyond their typical back-to-school duties, working with their staff to create safe and welcoming campus environments, despite limitations. From virtual award ceremonies to mobile Meet the Teacher drive-up events, our campus leaders are doing what it takes to make this school year a memorable experience for staff and students alike. 

Our principals are amazing educators whose work extends well beyond a typical school day. They dedicate a significant portion of their lives to serving our students and community, and lead their campuses in providing the best possible education for their students. 

This October during National Principals Month, we are taking the opportunity to recognize the contributions of all principals to the success of students in SAISD schools and encourage you to join us. Login to your social media accounts and tell your principal how much you appreciate their hard work and dedication. Make sure to include the #ThankAPrincipal hashtag to show your support for our school leaders and get the word out to other educators across the country.

During the next three weeks, there are a number of recognitions planned for SAISD principals including a special lunch delivery, free swag, and principal-specific digital Zoom backgrounds.
