One of the major reasons for relocation to our area by businesses, their employees and their families is the quality of education our local school districts offer. Want to find out firsthand what our local schools are doing right? If so, then consider participating in our 21st annual Principal for a Day program scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 4. Local chamber members will have the opportunity to “shadow” a school principal for half a day and have their eyes opened to what a school day looks like in the Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District, Eureka Union School District, Roseville City School District and Roseville Joint Union High School District. For more information, call Roseville Chamber of Commerce at (91) 783-8136.
