Cherokee County School Board members regularly visit schools for tours with Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower, members of his staff and the school’s Principal and administrative team. This week, the School Board visited Woodstock Elementary School, where they learned from Principal Matt Freedman about new initiatives to further improve teaching and learning, increase parent engagement and business and community partnerships, and focus on a positive school climate.
