American Education Week (Nov. 13-17) brought 135 members of Gwinnett’s business community into local schools to serve as “Principal for a Day” and, in one case, “Superintendent for a Day.” The annual event, co-sponsored by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce and GCPS, puts community leaders into the principal’s shoes for a school day. Participants had opportunities to meet with students and staff, observe lessons, and participate in classroom activities. Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was the presenting sponsor for the luncheon for participants on Dec. 8, with Eastside Medical Center, Peach State Federal Credit Union, and Georgia Campus–Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine serving as leading sponsors and Interactive Business Technologies as a table sponsor. Principals and community members first connected at a breakfast event in October. Watch this GCPS TV video to learn more about the 2017 Principal for a Day event.
