Here are the next round of Hamilton Co. Schools listening sessions
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) The Hamilton County School System announces the next round of community listening and planning sessions.
Parents and community members are all invited.
“This will be the second round of listening sessions since I came to this community last summer and we look forward to citizens once again sharing with us their hopes and dreams for their schools and children,” said Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools.
“We came away from the first round of listening sessions with a very targeted list of key initiatives that we will work to accomplish with the community’s continued support.”
The key initiatives and common themes from the first meetings include:
• increasing the number of fine arts teachers and access for children to arts programs in schools
• improving STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs and increasing access for all children
• focusing on school safety
• reviewing start times at the high school level and the potential for schools to pilot new start times next year
• enhancing community engagement
• ensuring students are better prepared for post-secondary opportunities
Here are the dates for February, but feel free to attend any of them, even if its not at your local school.
