The Cherokee County School District recently hosted a New Leaders Reception for the School Board to meet the educators recommended by the Superintendent of Schools for leadership roles including Principal posts. The reception, which was sponsored by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a CCSD Partner, gave School Board members the chance to meet and talk with the leaders before voting to approve their new roles for next school year. The new leaders and their families enjoyed a warm welcome, refreshments and the gift of a journal from Children’s Healthcare. This is the second year for this tradition, and a second event will be hosted next month for the School Board to meet additional new leaders including those recommended for Assistant Principal posts. #CCSDfam
