I love the sounds of this project and hope that some of the principals I know and that I’ve trained will jump on bord. Scott McLeod said to share this widely, so I’m posting the message in its entirety here. (And thanks to Mike Lawrence for passing it on.)

Subject: [sigtc-discussion] 100 principal blogs in 100 days!
Do you know a technology-inclined principal? Or a principal that would like to enhance communication with his or her local community?
The UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE) has initiated a project to create 100 new principal blogs in 100 days. Blogs are excellent tools for communicating with parents, publicizing school activities, and enhancing community satisfaction. Some superb examples include Meriwether Lewis Elementary and Mabry Middle School (GA).
CASTLE is looking for some principals who want to experiment with this new communication medium. Participants will be provided with a free blog and will receive ongoing support as they integrate their blogs into existing communication strategies. If you know a principal who might be interested, please pass this message along. More information about the Principal Blogging Project is available here:
Please share information about this project widely. Thanks!
