BUFFALO — The School Administrators Association of New York State announced that October was proclaimed Principals’ Month in New York state.
This recognition by Governor Andrew Cuomo came on Oct. 1.
Cuomo said he made the announcement in “acknowledgment of current and increasing responsibilities of school principals, amid growing expectations and challenges in New York schools.”
October is also National Principals’ Month, as recognized by the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives.
“SAANYS and its members are grateful to the governor for this commendation,” said SAANYS Executive Director Kevin Casey.
“Principals are leaders, managers, teachers and caregivers, working tirelessly for New York’s students. This proclamation is a meaningful acknowledgement of their time, dedication and perseverance.”
