Popular event opens reservations
Reservations are currently available for parents, business executives and community leaders who would like to spend the morning with a superintendent, assistant superintendent, principal or assistant principal in the 16th Annual Principal for a Day sponsored by the SCV Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation. This year’s event is Monday, Oct. 29, but the earliest reservations will have their choice of school or administrator.
Participants spend the morning shadowing an administrator from one of the five school districts in the valley, getting a first-hand perspective of the educational environment. The event concludes with a catered luncheon at the Santa Clarita Activities Center. The tax-deductible donation ranges from $150 for an elementary, junior high or middle school principal to $400 for a superintendent, with $200, $300 and $350 levels for administrators at other levels.
Sponsorships also are available, starting as low as $500. Proceeds help fund scholarships, grants and other projects of the Chamber’s Education Foundation.
Registration information and a fax-back registration form can be obtained by contacting Robin Choppé, chamber program director, at 702-6977 or by visiting the Education Foundation’s Web site at http://www.scvcef.com/events/principal.htm  .
