Quick brief about the award: Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah launched the “Distinguished Principal Award”, the second award to fall under the Association’s umbrella, in November 2008 because of her strong belief in the principals’ roles as leaders and administrators who guide teachers, encourage them and give them the support they need. Her Majesty also recognises the principal’s role as a role model and a force that pushes education forward, leaving a great impact on every aspect of the educational process.
Moreover, as a way to contribute to the development of education and the accurate selection of distinguished principals, the award’s standards are objective and comply with the standards of similar Arab and international awards set by a group of Jordanian educators so as to respond to the needs of the Jordanian education society. Special correction rules have also been implemented to assess these standards.
The Queen Rania Al-Abdullah Award for the Distinguished Principal is focused on the following pillars:
- The Student
- Integrity and Transparency
