Please join us during the month of October in recognizing the positive contributions our secondary and elementary school leaders have made on students in Lancaster ISD. At the most recent School Board Meeting, district trustees recognized each campus principal in honor of the Principals Month.
The “Principals Month” Proclamation reads:
As school leaders, principals are entrusted with our most valuable resource - our next generation of leaders. These students are our promise for the future, and it is critical that they receive a rigorous and well-rounded education.
Principals are more than just caretakers of their schools. Principals are expected to be educational leaders, disciplinarians, community builders, spokesmen, budget analysts and guardians of policy mandates and initiatives. Principals set the academic tone for their schools and work collaboratively with teachers to set performance objectives and maintain high curriculum standards.
Each year, organizations nationwide designate the month of October as a time to recognize the contributions of elementary, middle and high school principals.
At this time, I encourage all Texans to acknowledge the important role principals play in ensuring that every child has access to a high-quality education.
Therefore, I, Greg Abbott, Governor of Texas, do hereby proclaim October 2015 to be Principal’s Month in Texas, and urge the appropriate recognition whereof.
In official recognition whereof, I hereby affix my signature this the 23rd day of September, 2015.
