Principal for a Day

The Ventura Commerce and Education Foundation is pleased to support the efforts of Ventura Unified School District, its schools and staff by coordinating the Principal for a Day program each fall.

Have you ever heard a young person ask “Why do I need to learn history, math, chemistry, etc., I’ll never use it?” As an employer you know how important it is to have well trained, skilled employees, and how valuable basic skills are.

This is your opportunity to spend the day observing what our schools are doing to prepare the youth of today for our future.

By participating in “Principal for a Day” you will interact with school administrators, teachers, and students.

Through this experience you will:

  • Spend the morning (8 AM – 11:15 AM) in one of Ventura Unified School District’s 27 schools
  • Begin a dialogue between the business and education community
  • Share with each other what the daily workplace and education challenges are
  • Share knowledge to discover solutions to those challenges
  • Conclude the day with an open and honest dialogue over lunch (11:30 AM – 1:30 PM) to discuss the morning’s events and future collaboration
