CCSD superintendent releases "First 100 Days" report

Clarke County school superintendent Robbie Hooker is marking his first 100 days in office with a report detailing what he’s done and what he wants to do.

Hooker’s “First 100 Days” report lays out the number of meetings he’s had with teachers, administrators, parents, and community members as part of starting his job managing the sometimes-troubled school system.

Those meetings, Hooker said, helped him generate three broad priorities for the CCSD under his leadership. First among those is stabilizing the district around excellence in public education, including strengthening the lines of communication between schools and parents, as well as addressing the district’s communications with the public at large. Hooker also wants to strengthen instructional standards and increase student performance.

Hooker also said he wants to reevaluate the organization of district staff, a regular complaint from some who say the district is too top-heavy and inefficient, with too many administrators and not enough classroom staff.

Some change in that arena may already be happening; the district announced last week that the positions of Chief Academic Officer and Chief of Student Supports were being combined.

Hooker’s full report is available on the Clarke County School District website.
