New Principal Search Survey

Hamilton County Schools is searching for great teachers and leaders for our schools, and that quest includes eleven new principals for next school year. Allen Elementary, Alpine Crest Elementary, Calvin Donaldson Elementary, Daisy Elementary, East Hamilton School, Hixon Elementary, Lookout Valley Elementary, Lookout Valley Middle/High, Tyner Academy, Westview Elementary, and Wolftever Elementary will need new principals when school opens in the fall.

A survey developed to involve school parents in the process of finding a leader for each school will help the district in the selection process. The very short survey inquires about characteristics, and past experiences parents see as important for the new school leader. There are also questions to determine key elements parents would like to see continued and expanded at the schools and opportunities the parents see for growth or improvement.

If the school your child attends is one hiring a new principal for the fall, you can access the survey at:

The survey is very short and should take less than five minutes to complete. That very short investment of time will help Hamilton County Schools to include the hopes and dreams of parents for their children and our schools in the selection of new principals.

"Quality schools begin with high-quality leadership," said Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools. "We have developed a process that will involve the community and faculty in selecting the very best person to lead these schools and advance our goal of Hamilton County Schools becoming the fastest improving school district in the state."
