The Fourth Prinicpal for a Day Program in Jersey City Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Jersey City Public Schools –Area Business Leaders Reporting to the Principals’ Offices Next Thursday Morning

Prominent Jersey City business and community leaders are signing up to serve as Principals for a Day in the Jersey City Public Schools on Thursday, April 18, 2013. Last year 39 Principals for a Day made lasting impressions on the school children, teachers and administrators. The business and community leaders shared a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm. This year Jersey City business leaders  and community leaders are asked to do the same. Sign on to become a Principal for a Day.

In partnership with Jersey City developer Paul Silverman, the event marks the fourth Principal for a Day program in Jersey City. The Principals for a Day will spend their morning shadowing principals as they go about their daily routines in the JCPS.  In doing so, they will experience first- hand, the success stories and challenges facing the educators and students in the schools.

The participants and their principals will attend a luncheon in the latter part of June to turn the one-day experiences into long-term, productive partnerships with the schools that will support student achievement.

Please contact Susan Firth with questions, 201-714-2339.
