• The Regional Assistant Superintendent’s Recommendation is a critical component of the nomination package. When writing your recommendation (500 words maximum), you may want to include:

    • Anecdotes demonstrating the principal’s effectiveness in their school;
    • Testimonials/quotes from students, staff, families, or other community members;
    • Evidence of the principal’s impact and commitment to the school community;
    • Description of a student’s and/or educator's experience under the principal’s leadership.

    We recommend preparing your recommendation in a Word document and then copying the text into this form.

    Please note: We are no longer accepting applications for the 2023-2024 George Arlotto Leadership Award.
