Kelly updates Realtors on the state of public schools

- David Laprad | Hamilton County Herald

Interim Superintendent of Hamilton County Schools Dr. Kirk Kelly provided a snapshot of local public schools April 5 at the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors’ membership breakfast.

Kelly spoke about the successes of the county school system as well as the many challenges it faces.

While ACT test scores are up and more graduates are going to college, the county is still working to offer its educators competitive pay, dealing with growing pains and looking for ways to keep all of its students in class.

The school system is addressing the latter issue by working with local employers to create effective work study programs.
