Beginning with the 2017 school year, the Superintendent's Office kicked off an annual program called “Principal for a Day” to be held district-wide, every March 2nd coinciding with Read Across America Day.

This initiative is designed to promote an open dialogue and job-shadowing experience for local West Sacramento business and community leaders. 

The Principal for a Day concept provides these individuals with a personal glimpse into the daily world of our school administrators and with a greater understanding of our school district and the services we provide to the community. Our intent is to help build lasting relationships and partnerships that will strengthen our efforts as a school district to further support student success.

All details, logistics, and event execution as implemented through the Superintendent’s Office culminating with a student prepared luncheon at the Bryte Garden Café located at the Bryte College and Career Training campus.
