The NASSP Assistant Principal of the Year award program annually recognizes outstanding school leaders who have succeeded in providing high-quality learning opportunities for students.  These assistant principals are acknowledged by their peers for the exemplary contributions they have made to the profession by demonstrating excellence in the areas of personal excellence; collaborative leadership; curriculum, instruction and assessment; and personalization. 

In his nomination letter, Kevin Conwell, Principal at Bozeman High School stated, “Katie embodies the concept of servant leadership; she always puts the needs of the building and team above her own while working to help others find their strengths and grow thus building the capacity of our school.  Katie models distributed leadership and shares authority out of respect for others’ strengths, empowering others to become a positive influence in the building.  Katie is an attentive listener.  Her fun-loving and compassionate nature connect her with students, her integrity and thoughtful analysis have earned her the respect of teachers, her willingness to work with families through any variety of difficult situations, and her positive presence connect her with the community in many positive ways.”

Ms. Laslovich works collaboratively to support students and make Bozeman High a more highly functioning institution.  She has worked with the Climate Committee to roll out the “Hawk Way” of emphasizing acceptance, integrity, and respect.  She updated the school’s attendance procedures causing notable improvements in the school’s attendance rates. 

Ms. Laslovich will represent Montana when she joins honorees from the other 49 states for a recognition program in Boston in July, where she will be considered for the 2019 NASSP National Assistant Principal of the Year.

MASSP and the members of SAM congratulate Ms. Katie Laslovich on receiving this award.
