FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Community and business leaders to be "Principal for a Day'

 
Twenty-one community and business leaders will spend October 25 as public school principals through the Gresham-Barlow 
School District’s and the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation’s Principal for a Day program. The program is designed to 
help community leaders better understand the complex role of the school principal and get perspective on the school system 
from within.
 
Community leaders stepping into the role of school principal will participate in any number of activities, including visiting 
classrooms, meeting with teachers and parents, participating in a student council meeting, eating lunch in the cafeteria, 
or helping out on the playground.
 
“The Principal for a Day Program is a great way to connect the community with our schools,” said Superintendent Jim 
Schlachter. “It’s important for community members to see firsthand the work being done to prepare students for life-long 
success once they graduate from our high schools.”
             
This is the ninth annual “Principal for a Day” event in the Gresham-Barlow School District. The unique one-day event brings
together business, government, and community leaders and spotlights the work being done in our schools to educate tomorrow’s 
leaders. Principal for a Day programs have been extremely successful in Portland, New York City, Los Angeles, and many 
other school districts throughout the country.
 
The Gresham-Barlow School District serves more than 11,500 students in grades K-12. The Gresham-Barlow Education 
Foundation was formed in 1994 to assist the schools of the district in providing the best possible educational opportunities
for students.
