ORLANDO – Education Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg last night announced the winners of the 2007 Principal Achievement Award for Outstanding Leadership during the Fourth Annual Commissioner's Summit for Principals hosted by the Department of Education and the Florida Association of School Administrators.

Established in 1988, the Principal Achievement Award for Outstanding Leadership recognizes school administrators for increasing student achievement performance levels, establishing community partnerships and parental involvement, providing assistance for at-risk and special needs students, and developing innovative strategies to positively impact the school and learning environment.

Each state winner was presented with a trophy, certificate, a check for $2,500 and a $1,000 check for their school.
