A Message to California School and District Administrators

Principals and superintendents are responsible for the “big picture” of their schools and districts. This might include anything from budget management to staff training and working directly with students and parents. It’s critical work that is full of opportunities to help students and families in California succeed. The information gathered in these pages helps you stay up to date, maximize your resources, and connect with colleagues.
