The Douglas County Chamber is pleased to partner with the Douglas County School System and Brighten Academy for the eighth annual “Principal 4 a Day” on Thursday, November 29th. This program allows members of the business community to visit one of the 36 schools in Douglas County or Brighten Academy and shadow the principal for a half day.
“Principal 4 a Day” is a program adopted by the Douglas County School System and the Douglas County Chamber in 2011. Each school principal will be paired with a local member of the business community who will experience a typical day in the principal’s shoes. Guest principals will be exposed to the many exciting programs offered in our schools as well as gaining first-hand insight into the challenges that schools face on a daily basis.
Chamber President and CEO commented, “Principal 4 a Day has become a fun and eye opening experience that our Chamber members look forward to each year. Allowing business leaders to have access to principals is an excellent way for the community to see the needs of each school and to help tell the story of the successes they achieve daily.”
“The Douglas County School System is again pleased to partner with the Douglas County Chamber to offer Principal 4 A Day,” stated Superintendent Trent North. “This is an excellent opportunity for our community members to visit with principals in our schools and learn more about the quality education we provide and become better acquainted with the learning that takes place every day. Our principals and staff are all committed to offering an excellent education to all students in a safe, supportive environment.”
While this program is for members of the business community, other members of the Douglasville and Douglas County community will have the opportunity to participate in the second portion of this program, “Teacher 4 a Day” on March 27, 2019.
