Santa Clarita Valley business leaders, community members and parents are invited to register for the 26th anniversary “Principal for a Day” event sponsored by the SCV Education Foundation on Friday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Participants will spend the morning with a local public-school principal or district administrator of their choice from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Lunch will follow with all principals, district administrators, and sponsors attending.
During the luncheon, Foundation officials will induct Tom Lee and Donna Avila into the SCV Education Foundation Hall of Fame.
Tom Lee is being recognized as a Legacy recipient of the Hall of Fame. He was the Founding Chairman of the SCV Education Committee in 1984 and provided the leadership to gather all five superintendents to focus on public education as an extension of the California Business Roundtable efforts.
Donna Avila worked for the city of Santa Clarita until earlier this year and was an integral part of connecting businesses, government and schools for numerous years.
The luncheon will be held at the Santa Clarita Centre from 11:30 a.m. to 1 pm.
Participants have the best chance of being matched with their first or second school choice by registering as soon as possible.
The tax-deductible donation to participate ranges from $150 for an elementary or junior high principal to $300 for a high school principal to $450 for a superintendent.
Event sponsorships, for this 25th annual event, are also available.
Sponsorships include tickets to the luncheon, ad in program, commemorative gift and placement with a Principal or Administrator for upper-level sponsorships.
Supporters who can’t attend the event but want to show their support and encouragement to future teachers can sponsor a future educator from the College of the Canyons TEACH program to take their place at the school and then join us for the luncheon.
Sponsorships are $500, $1,000 and $1,500.
All five local school districts are involved in this event, including the Hart, Castaic, Saugus, Newhall and Sulphur Springs districts.
Principals and district administrators enjoy the opportunity to provide participants with a first-hand perspective of the local public school educational environment. The SCV Education Foundation is looking forward to every school in all five districts having at least one participant shadowing each principal this year.
