Report: Principal for a Day
Assistant Superintendent Baron Davis presented an overview of the recent Principal For A Day (PFAD) program held in Richland Two. PFAD programs have a long track record of success in many school districts. Inviting community leaders to shadow a principal for a day is a concept designed to help participants understand the rewards and rigors of the principalship. The PFAD program has resulted in appreciation and respect for schools, teachers and principals, and it has built lasting public relations benefits. This is the second year Richland Two has offered the PFAD program to community.
