Principal for a Day at Ocean Springs Upper Elementary

Have you ever wondered what it takes to run an entire school? Educators in Ocean Springs wanted local leaders to find out. The school district hosted their third annual Principal for a Day event where business leaders walked a day in the shoes of each school’s principal. Each participant received an agenda of everyday activities the principal has to accomplish including observations, planning meetings and interacting with their students.
Nikki Skrmetti was a fill-in principal for a day. She said, “It is absolutely phenomenal the amount of preparation and how many moving parts go on within the school at any given moment to make it be so well orchestrated where it runs smoothly for our students.”
School officials tell News 25 the event is designed to help business and community leaders understand the rewards and challenges of a school principal.
