Superintendent Will Schofield announced today his intent to recommend Dr. Jamie Hitzges as the next Principal of East Hall Middle School. The recommendation will be made at tonight’s board meeting, Monday, March 28, 2022. Hitzges will follow Dr. Jeff Chandler who is retiring at the end of the school year.
Hitzges has been the Principal at Chicopee Woods Elementary since his arrival in Hall County in 2017.
“East Hall Middle School will benefit immensely from Dr. Hitzges’ leadership,” said Superintendent Will Schofield. “He understands the importance of relationships—how they build a foundation for community, for school culture, and for the instruction necessary to challenge students at all levels. He’s a proven leader with a wide range of experience and we are excited for the East Hall Middle School students, staff, and community.”
Hitzges has over a decade of experience as a classroom instructor, teaching elementary school in both Florida and Georgia (1996-2008). In 2008, he was selected as Assistant Principal for Instruction at West Jackson Intermediate School. He transferred to North Jackson Elementary in 2011 to serve as principal, and in 2012 he was promoted to Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Operations for Jackson County Schools. In 2017, he joined the Hall County School District as Principal of Chicopee Woods Elementary.
“I am so excited to join the East Hall Middle School family,” said Hitzges. “I am firm believer that any one person can change the outlook for a student. With this in mind, I look forward to serving and collaborating with the East Hall community as we strive to reach ‘Every Child. Every Day’.”
