Each of the eleven MAESP Regional Networks may nominate a MAESP member assistant principal.

Criteria established by MAESP require the individual to be a full-time assistant principal supporting one or more learning communities. The assistant principal must demonstrate evidence of outstanding support and contributions to the school community and the potential to contribute to the education profession as a school principal. The assistant principal must:

Be a member of MAESP at the time of  nomination and plan to maintain membership in MAESP during his time as a school leader,

Be clearly committed to supporting excellence in the school community,

Be involved in helping to develop programs designed to meet the needs of all students; and

Be developing firm ties to parents, staff  and the overall community.

These Outstanding Assistant Principals are recognized each year at the annual MAESP Leadership Conference.

Congratulations to the 2024 Outstanding Assistant Principals!
