BAYSIDE – Eureka’s principals are back in school. And no class isn’t in session. Instead they were honing their skills as administrators at the first ever Principals Academy.
Eureka City School’s Lead Instructional Coach administered the two-day training in Bayside.
Many new faces have joined the district in the last few years. The academy offered a chance to develop this next generation of campus leaders.
They learned how to work with students and parents and how to build relationships with the greater community.
Eureka’s Superintendent Fred Van Vleck says that principals do it all. They might serve as substitute teachers one day, discipline students the next then fill in as janitors when needed.
Van Vleck expects the training to continue on an annual basis.
