Mary Beth Imes ® District 5 made a special stop to MISD's three campuses, MES, MMS, and MHS, for Principal for a Day Program.
The visit is part of the Principal for a Day Program which was enacted during the 2021 Legislative session as part of House Concurrent Resolution 25, co-sponsored by Representatives Steve Riley, Ed Massey, Ruth Ann Palumbo, and Phillip Pratt. “The Principal for a Day program was designed to give legislators a first-hand look at what is going on in Kentucky schools and to build stronger partnerships between legislators and public education,” said Representative Riley. “We want the PFAD program to be a meaningful experience for legislators to experience the challenges and sometimes difficult responsibilities of school leadership.”
During the visit, Representative Imes experienced what it is like to lead a school. She greeted students as they stepped off the bus, assisted in the cafeteria during breakfast, toured the school, and shadowed the school custodian. https://bit.ly/3pqRjlB
