The Principal’s Role

What is the role of the principal in the National Council of Excellence application process?

The principal has two direct responsibilities in the application process. The first happens when the student council has completed its portfolio of evidence for the award. Council members will need to schedule a meeting with the principal for the purpose of presenting and reviewing the portfolio for principal evaluation. Following that meeting, the council will complete the online application which includes an email invitation to the principal to add their validation of the council’s achieving recognition.
