Principal for a Day 2015

  • Thank you Members of the Duarte Chamber of Commerce for Reporting to the Offices of Duarte Unified Principals!

    Local business and civic leaders  participated in the annual Duarte Chamber of Commerce and Duarte Unified School District “Principal for a Day” program on Wednesday, November 4, 2015. Sponsored by the Duarte Chamber of Commerce, the program matches the talent and expertise of local business member of the community with a school principal. Participants spent the morning on campus shadowing a Duarte Unified school principal, giving them a rare and valuable perspective of what’s involved in running a public school.
    This annual event has resulted in the establishment of bonds with the community participants and their host campus who have become strong supporters and vital members of the school's community. After reporting to the principal’s office, the 2015 "Principal for a Day" graduates gathered to meet other principals and district leaders at the Duarte Unified Professional Learning Center to share their experiences.
