Registration for Principal for a Day 2021 has now closed.
If you are interested
registering, please contact Karen Hornfeck.


Step inside of a school on the morning of November 17 for an inspiring in-depth conversation with a GCS principal. Get a first-hand look at how these frontline leaders are responding to the unique challenges of re-opening schools during a pandemic and how education is being fundamentally re-shaped in Guilford County. A $300 million dollar school facilities bond was approved in November 2020 and that work is underway. A follow-up bond for $1.7 billion will be on the ballot in March 2021. The decisions we are making right now are shaping Guilford County’s future. Be a part of the discussion – join us for Principal for a Day 2021. 

Virtual and in-person options are available.
