Principal for Almost a Day
When: Thursday, October 27, 2022
Where: At multiple schools throughout Multnomah County or through a virtual meeting
Who Participates: Education, business, civic and nonprofit leaders
Principal for Almost a Day, celebrating its 22nd year, brings community stakeholders together with principals at schools* across Multnomah County for a half-day to learn about both the challenges and opportunities our educators encounter. It’s an eye-opening experience for our guests, giving them firsthand knowledge of the continued effects and challenges our school communities face but, equally as important, the information and inspiration to champion system change that will make a real impact.
*Due to COVID protocols or timing, some participating schools will host a virtual meeting as an alternative to an in-person visit.
WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT PFAD
“From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed to participate… seeing my role as an observer shadowing the principal, I nevertheless was invited to be just that—hearing and seeing the real moment-to-moment tasks and interactions with staff and students.”
“The experience revealed that, despite this era of social upheaval and political division, our schools and educators are making positive change in the lives of our children and guiding them toward becoming stewards of their future as responsible citizens.”
“The community needs to have as many of these kinds of interactions as possible—[to see] what it takes to run schools, and the people that do it every day—and making better decisions about whether we are doing enough to help our kids develop and become capable, healthy, engaged humans as we send them out into the world.”
From declining attendance to the barriers of remote learning, COVID-19 has created a massive ripple effect across the educational landscape—especially for BIPOC students. By generously supporting our 22nd annual Principal for Almost a Day this October, you can make a mighty impact.
