(MOUNT VERNON)- Fourteen business and community leaders will spend today as a guest public school principal in Mount Vernon through the Principal for a Day program. The program is designed to help community leaders better understand the complex role of schools and to learn their input. Guests will shadow Mount Vernon principals throughout the day, but will not be choosing curriculum or handling discipline issues. Instead, they will visit classrooms, meet with teachers, eat lunch with students in the cafeteria, and participate in other school activities.
