HHMS Employee of the Month - Samantha Tate

Hamilton-Holmes is proud to name, Ms. Samantha Tate, as Employee of the Month.  Ms. Tate is in her second year of teaching students with disabilities at Hamilton-Holmes Middle School.

King William School Board Announces Superintendent Search

(October 21, 2015) - The King William County School announced today that it will begin the process of hiring a new superintendent by seeking public input on qualifications.

The school board has created a survey related to superintendent criteria, which is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KingWilliamSuptSearch, and on the home page of the division website.  Hard copies of the survey will also be available at the school board administration offices, at each school and the public library.

In addition to the survey, the board will hold a public hearing:

Date:  January 19, 2016
Time:  6:00 p.m.
Location:  Hamilton Holmes Middle School Atrium

“Hiring a new superintendent is the biggest task a school board will face and we want to make sure that the public has a voice in this process,” said School Board Chair Lindsay Robinson, “We hope that parents, staff and residents will take time to fill out the survey or attend the public hearing.”

The school board selected the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) to assist the Board with the superintendent search.
