We are excited four the launch the Hamilton County School’s Office of Innovation and Choice that took place this summer!

Hamilton County School’s dedication to innovation and choice is evident in the district’s action plan Future Ready 2023. Recently, through the community’s vision, Velocity 2040, of what life will be like in Chattanooga and Hamilton County in 2040, the top goal was identified: “we will be the smartest city in the South, focused on educational excellence and attainment for all students.” As a school system, our focus on innovation and choice is vital to reaching these goals.

In the Office of Innovation and Choice, we believe that if we teach in ways that make students want to learn, they will want to learn more! We will bring exciting, engaging, meaningful and joyous learning opportunities to students throughout Hamilton County. We will start by expanding existing innovative opportunities to more schools and more students and by exploring national trends and ideas related to innovation. We also will focus on expanding our portfolio of school choice options and on helping families to learn about all of the amazing school choice options that exist for their children.

Stay tuned! Exciting opportunities are headed this way!
