Atlanta Civic and Business Leaders Bring Project for a Day to Atlanta Public Schools

Business partners visited over 90 APS schools and helped students with various academic activities, including essay writing for college applications.

Approximately 150 Atlanta business and civic leaders fanned out to public schools across the city recently to participate in our first-ever Project for a Day (formerly Principal for a Day) event.

Professionals from Coca-Cola, the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, Georgia-Pacific, IBM, Junior Achievement, Project GRAD Atlanta, Target, Tyler Perry Studios, UPS and other organizations spent the morning of October 23 participating in a hands-on, student-focused activity on nearly every APS school campus. Afterward, business professionals and community partners joined an audience of more than 600 – including principals and partnership coordinators – at the Omni Hotel for the Atlanta Partners for Education Celebratory Awards Luncheon.

Mayor Kasim Reed, Superintendent Davis and APS students recognized partners and schools for their outstanding partnership programs. WSB-TV anchor Jovita Moore served as the emcee.

Please visit the media gallery on the district website to view photos from this event.

Partners from Tyler Perry Studios spent the day at Continental Colony Elementary School. The school has a robust partnership with the nearby movie studio.

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A few of my blog audience have complained about my website not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
