Trading Places is a bi-annual opportunity in Helena. School administrators bring members of the Helena area business, governmental and nonprofit community into the schools in the morning and switch venues for the second part of the day. Participants who haven’t been in a classroom for years have a chance to see the exciting changes in classrooms since their own or their children’s school days.
This event allows business and community leaders an opportunity to learn more about the role of administrators in our schools and to witness the decisions and responsibilities principals face each day. Principals learn more about other sectors and see how schools can play a role in supporting local businesses and community organizations.“Trading Places fosters relationships. I’m working on bringing together a few technology companies to work with schools to prepare students for a different job landscape for when they graduate.” – A business participant in Trading Places A business participant in Trading Places
