HOUSTON CO. Ala. (WDHN) — With Houston County Schools Superintendent Brandy White taking over as Houston County Schools superintendent, he has some things he wants to do.
White said he wants to have central office staff go into schools to find out what resources teachers need and identify things that they’re doing well.
Another thing he wants to improve is technology.
“We do know that we’d like to improve our technology and we’ve got quite a few chrome books coming this spring,” White said. “So we’re excited about that, and we’re gonna have to determine how we’re going to implement that.”
The Chromebooks will be for the students to use Schoology in class.
Other things White is looking to do is improve facilities at schools that need it around the county.
“We have some schools that need classrooms,” he said. “We have some schools where we’ll be building a fieldhouse, concession stands, restrooms, but we have quite a few needs at some of the schools.”
In regards to COVID-19, White said the students and staff have done an excellent job in wearing masks and keeping everything clean.
That being said, White said going back to school is best for students.
“I don’t think you can replace a teacher and that face to face that they provide and so we’re hoping to get as many of our students back and at the same time keep our students and our staff as safe as possible,” White said.
