Principal for a 1/2 Day 2018

We cordially invite you to participate in the all new 2018 Principal for a 1/2 Day! For half a day on February 8th, learn what it is like to be a Principal or Administrator in the Washoe County School District and about the 65,000 students they serve. There are many assumptions about education in Washoe County and this event allows you to see first-hand what education looks and feels like in our community and gives you the chance to share ideas and establish relationships with those in education. Don’t miss the wine and cheese Meet your Match mixer the night before, February 7th at 5:30 pm hosted by our generous partner, the Reno+Sparks Chamber of Commerce located at 449 S Virginia St, Reno! On Thursday, meet at school or business at 8am and have lunch hosted by Renown Health Mack Auditorium at noon, located at 1155 Mill St, Reno.
