Guilford Education Alliance hosts the annual Principal for a Day in the winter. Participants spent the morning shadowing a Guilford County Schools' principal on campus. This event provides an opportunity for corporate and community leaders to get a first-hand look at what Guilford County is doing to improve instruction in our schools as well as to experience what is demanded of principals in their dual roles as managers and instructional leaders. Participants see up close both the strengths of the county's public schools and the challenges they face.
In February 2014, we had 94 principals participate in PFAD! We look forward to partnering you in 2015. If you are interested, please email Jennifer Reavis at jreavis@GuilfordEducationAlliance.org.
