School Principals and the Shared Use of School Facilities

Principals can play a key role in championing shared use in their school systems. Principals are responsible for supporting the academic success of their students, and also for acting as a liaison to parents and the community. 

Efforts to provide more physical activity opportunities through shared use rely upon the support and promotion of principals. At the same time, shared use campaigns support the central goals of principals. Shared use efforts are a promising strategy to increase physical activity and student academic performance.
