Baltimore City Public Schools continually cultivates a culture of leadership at every level throughout the district. A school's success starts with its principal and how their leadership transcends throughout the building with their staff and then within the school's community. As part of their professional growth, City Schools is proud to recognize those school leaders that go above and beyond the call of duty to profoundly and successfully transform the lives of their students, teachers, partners and the community that surrounds them. Each year City Schools celebrates a new cohort of principals through key leadership designations for school-based administrative positions known as “Transformational Principals”. These leaders are taking the next step in their ongoing work of inspiring and mentoring both peers and students while ensuring excellent teaching and learning in every classroom.
The transformational principal designation is part of the district’s contract with the Public School Administrators and Supervisors Association that clearly delineates and rewards educators’ progression toward positions of leadership that will build schools’ capacity to ensure high-quality academic experiences for all students.
