The leaders will become "principal for a day" in the program by the the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce. The program kicked off at McKean High School outside Wilmington. Bill Allan is chairman of the board of the chamber.
"Business leaders get a deeper and better understanding for what goes on in schools, and more informed business leaders make better-informed decisions and better-informed advice," he said.
Brent Hall is a junior at McKean High who's interested in radio, and who looks forward to talking with the guest principal.
"You know they've been there before, you know you're going to learn something that they've actually been through, so you know you're going to learn something important," he said.
The program has matched 1,100 business leaders with principals over the last 18 years.
