BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – The school year is right around the corner, and students and teachers all across the state are preparing to head back to the classroom.
Jefferson County Schools welcomed 200 new teachers to its school system Wednesday.
The new teachers had the opportunity to meet and greet each other, as well as review curriculum expectations for the upcoming year.
Superintendent Stephen Nowlin says he’s implementing his reorganization plans at a gradual pace.
“The important thing is getting everybody focused on what the main this is, and that’s teaching and learning, and that’s what we’re working on,” Nowlin said. “I want to say that I think we have a very effective central office staff, we have some good principal, and I think we’re off to a great start.”
The first day of school for Jefferson County is August 19, 2013.
