Hamilton County Schools Works to Revamp the Way It Develops, Selects Principals

Hamilton County Schools is working to revamp the way it develops and selects new principals, officials believing that hiring and retaining outstanding school leaders can go far toward moving the district forward.

Last week, Hamilton County’s principals had a morning of hands-on professional development as they visited schools across the county and saw how their peers are working to boost literacy.

They visited Battle Academy, where teachers were giving literacy lessons, and sat in as a group of second-grade teachers planned with the school’s literacy coach for coming weeks.
