Getting inside a school is one the best ways to learn more about public education in Guilford County. During this yearly event, GEA invites community members to spend the morning shadowing a GCS principal to experience how some of our community’s most dynamic leaders juggle a dizzying array of challenges.
Then, join us for a “lunch and learn” program with school principals, other community participants and GCS leaders.
Relationships between the community and our schools matter, and this popular event helps build key community-school connections.
Principal for a Day Highlights
How It Works
When you sign up, you may choose a school that you would like to learn more about or let us pair you up with one. Once you’ve been matched with a school, we will connect you with your host principal. On the day of the event, arrive at your assigned school ready to learn!
Afterwards, we will gather for lunch and discuss the challenges and opportunities that our schools face and how we can come together to ensure that our schools are vibrant learning environments for every child!
Participation fee is $35.00.
