To best meet the needs of students and better prepare them for the workforce, Hall County Schools will be offering six new technical classes at three high schools beginning in the 2020-2021 school year.
Three new manufacturing and production classes will be offered at West Hall High School, and existing space at the school will be renovated during Summer 2020 to create a state of the art manufacturing lab where students can apply classroom knowledge in a real world environment.
Three new automotive courses will be offered at Chestatee High and East Hall High. Space at Chestatee High will undergo renovations during Summer 2020 to create an automotive lab for students to gain hands on experience and learn mechanical skills.
"A goal of mine during the campaign and upon entering office was to further expand career and technical opportunities for our 28,000 students and to help them be the most job ready graduates in Georgia. These new courses and state of the art labs will enhance the educational opportunities for so many of our students and I am excited to see them take advantage of these programs to achieve their dreams," said Mark Pettitt, Hall County Board of Education Member. "The Hall County School District does a fantastic job of promoting technical skills and job readiness. I am excited about the future."
Design and engineering is currently underway for Summer 2020 renovation projects at each school.
