Some local leaders and celebrities took time out from their regular jobs to fill in as "principal for a day" at Chicago Public Schools.

ABC 7's Roz Varon served as principal at Salazar Bilingual Center Thursday.

Mayor Richard Daley started the program 12 years ago to encourage the civic and corporate communities to become involved with the city's public schools.

After the school day ended, the guest principals headed to a reception at Navy Pier featuring a tribute to the mayor.
