Delaware Principal for a Day

The Delaware Principal for a Day program began in 1993, and since 2004, the program has facilitated more than 1,400 school visits. Businesspeople have visited Delaware schools for many and varied reasons, but ultimately the goal is to create a closer connection between school, college and career. Meet the next generation of prospective employees as this program provides a firsthand look at YOUR future workforce. Recognizing a need to foster working relationships between business leaders and educators, the State Chamber created this program to provide CEO's and business leaders an opportunity to spend the day in a Delaware school carrying out the daily responsibilities of a principal.
This year more than 100 schools will open their doors to host a guest principal. Follow the program on Facebook where participants can share their photos and stories. Like us on Facebook here.
