Thousands of principals from schools nationwide will descend on San Francisco next week for the annual conference with National Association of Secondary School Principals.
The administrators will meet to discuss building leadership capacity at schools while enhancing culture and improving student performance.
According to San Francisco Unified School District officials, Superintendent Carlos Garcia will be a speaker at the conference. He will share strategies that helped minority students make double-digit gains in California standardized test scores.
Garica will “be sharing how the plan is making a difference for students in the classroom, and talking about the values that have guided him throughout his 34 years as a leader in education,” district officials said.
The conference, titled “The Time is Now,” is scheduled for Feb. 24 through Feb. 27 at the Moscone Center.
