More than 700 Miami-Dade business and community leaders participated in the 22nd Annual Principal TODAY event in schools throughout the district, yesterday. This event continues Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ (M-DCPS) tradition of engaging business/community leaders to serve as a school principal.
Principal TODAY offers principals and business leaders the opportunity to build long-term partnerships that benefit our students. The event is held in partnership with Bank of America, Scholastic and FELD Entertainment.
