USD 308 to Host Second Annual Educator for a Day Event

HUTCHINSON, Kan. – USD 308 will host its second annual Educator for a Day event in celebration of American Education Week on Thursday, November 17, 2022.

In 2021, Hutchinson Public Schools hosted their first-ever Educator for a Day event, giving leaders in the Hutchinson Community an opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at 21st century education.

Community leaders will be paired with a USD 308 principal while engaging in classroom activities, meeting with staff, and sharing their experiences with district leaders.

The 2022 Educator for a Day event will take place on November 17, 2022, and will host 20 area leaders.
