NOTICE: With the dramatic increase in land development in Reston, VA and the completion of the DC Metro Rail Silver Line Wiehle-Reston East Station, NASSP headquarters is materially impacted by the Fairfax County master plan to build a connecting overpass to alleviate increased traffic congestion. As such, the NASSP Board of Directors is actively marketing NASSP headquarters property in cooperation with its neighbors in the Center for Education Associations. While a prospective move is unlikely until 2020 the NASSP Board has also indicated its intention for NASSP headquarters to remain in Reston once the property is sold. We will continue to post updates as they become available.

Since 1921, NASSP has been committed to the ongoing development of student leaders through its National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, National Elementary Honor Society, and National Student Council student programs.

Defend Title II Funding for Our Schools
Despite the proven impact of principal and teacher quality on student achievement, President Trump's proposed FY 2019 budget has called for the complete elimination of Title II, Part A funds. The bipartisan 2015 Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) authorized this critical funding to states for the purpose of preparing, training, recruiting, and retaining high-quality teachers, principals, assistant principals, and other school leaders.
Title II, Part A, already suffered a $294 million cut in FY 2017, which brought the funding amount down to far below the $2.295 billion authorized under ESSA.
President Trump is proposing eliminating a program that can aid our nation's educators in better supporting all students, but these numbers are not final. Congress is still working through the budget appropriations process. It is critical that you contact your representatives to let them know that you oppose cuts to this program and tell them to support full funding for Title II, Part A of ESSA.
