Central office administrators will walk the halls of Ooltewah High school on Tuesday, filling in for school principals and assistant principals from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The administrative swap at Ooltewah High will allow for extended planning for the school administrators.
The administrative team at Ooltewah High will be at the central office on Tuesday developing a comprehensive plan for the school for the second semester. Dr.
Justin Robertson, chief schools officer; Dr. John Tharp, executive director of the Harrison Bay Learning Community; Blake Freeman, director of Future Ready Institutes of Hamilton County Schools; and John Maynard, CTE director; will be the central level administrators filling the posts as school administrators at Ooltewah High for the day.
“With the placement of a new administrative team during the second quarter of this year at Ooltewah High, extended time for solid instructional planning is scarce,” said Angela Cass, principal at Ooltewah High. “The administrative swap will allow the Ooltewah administrative team a chunk of time to develop a comprehensive plan for the second semester centered around teacher professional development, quality instruction, and student achievement.”
The four central level administrators have extensive experience as school administrators in their background before moving to central administration. “Between the four of us, we have a variety of experiences in administration at the school level,” said Dr. John Tharp, executive director of the Harrison Bay Learning Community. “I look forward to the experience and the progress we will see at Ooltewah High with the quality planning time provided to the school leaders.”
