Principal for a Day
Building partnerships between community leaders and Tyler ISD.
Tyler ISD Campuses
Principal For A Day is designed to:
• Give business leaders a glimpse into the education world, as well as an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of local schools;
• Demonstrate the business communities dedication and commitment to helping our schools and students succeed;
• Form ongoing partnerships between local businesses and Tyler ISD.
How it Works
Business leaders will shadow the principal during their regular daily routine on a campus. This may include an agenda of meeting students, special events, classroom evaluations, hallway/cafeteria monitoring and more. The business leader and principal will spend the morning sharing ideas and learning together. All business leaders and principals will come together for lunch to discuss their experiences and potential plans for a future partnership.
*To further the business partnership, school principals will visit the business location by February to learn more about the business operations, employee roles and expectations, the skill sets needed by employees in that industry and more!
