Principal for Almost a Day
Join us on Thursday, October 27, 2016 for Principal for Almost a Day!
Many of us have not walked the halls of a school for some time, much less raised our hand in class to ask a question. Yet we are frequently asked to make decisions that impact our local schools. In its sixteenth year, Principal for Almost a Day (PFAD) provides community leaders with an opportunity to shadow a principal to learn more about the opportunities that exist in schools throughout Multnomah County. From the “morning bell” through school lunch, PFAD participants are welcomed as honorary principals spending time gaining a first-hand experience by interacting with students, faculty, teachers and parents. PFAD is one of the ways All Hands Raised works with partners to develop a deeper understanding of how to support our students and our schools and improve collective practices that influence sustained improvements in educational outcomes for all children and youth in Multnomah County. We hope you will join us!
To see some of the 2015 guest principals in action, see our Facebook album (or our Flickr album).
For more reasons to get involved, read about Victoria Lara’s story of impact at Roosevelt High School and about Kaiser Permanente’s experiences at Lincoln Park Elementary School.
Special thanks to our 2016 sponsors for helping to make Principal for Almost a Day possible!
