Principal for a Day!

In honor of American Education Week, Durham Public Schools announces the 2013-14 Principal for a Day program!

Principal for a Day logoWe invite you to spend a half day with a principal in a DPS school. Business & community partners will have the opportunity to learn more about the successes and challenges of a principal and discover ways that you and your company can get more involved with schools and students. Some of the activities for the day could include: greeting parents and students, reading the morning announcements, sitting in on classes, monitoring lunch and eating lunch in the cafeteria, attending student performances, participating in physical education and more.
