Schools to Welcome Community Visitors

Hoping to forge ties between the business community and schools, campuses throughout Ventura County will be hosting guests to shadow a principal for the day.

The March 18 event, geared toward business and community leaders, will allow a guest to work alongside a principal from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m at participating schools.

“This program, which we try to offer every year, provides insights to both educators and community leaders,” said Charles Weis, county superintendent of schools. “Participants learn about curriculum, parent and staff relationships, discipline issues and managing the facilities.”

Sponsors of the program include the California Business Roundtable, the California Chamber of Commerce and the Industry Education Council of California.


The Oxnard Union High School District will hold its event March 14.

To be part of the program, contact the schools directly or call Philip Gore at the Ventura County superintendent of schools office at 383-1923. Gore will match applicants with the grade level and community of their choice.
