    Event Description:

    Spend one day working alongside a McDuffie County Public School principal, and you’ll never look at the principal’s job (or maybe your own!) in quite the same way. Business leaders get to experience amazing leaders, outstanding teachers, eager students, precious faces…the sights and sounds of quality teaching and learning…and a chance to walk in the shoes of one of the most important jobs in America…a public school principal during this year’s Principal for a Day program. Principal for a Day provides business leaders a firsthand, authentic look at the operations of today’s schools and the principals who lead them.

    Who can participate?

    Business and civic leaders. Come share your knowledge with school staff while learning more about our public schools, and experience a day in a McDuffie County school.

    How does it work?

    “Principals For A Day” are assigned to schools based on their interests and the desires the schools express. You’ll discuss interests, expectations, and the day’s agenda with the school’s actual principal to guarantee a great experience.

    On the day of the visit, the “Principal For A Day” spends time with the principal, faculty, and students, sharing ideas and learning about the schools day-to-day operations. As a guest principal, you might:

    Teach a class; Meet with the student council; Attend student performances; Read to students;  Address a class assembly; or Participate in a number of other activities.

    At the end of the event, all guest principals convene with the superintendent, principals, and other business leaders to recap at 12:00 p.m. at the Board of Education Office. They’ll discuss their experiences and potential commitments, and make plans for future involvement with their host school or the district.
