“It’s important for the Richmond Hill community to get to know our Richmond Hill schools and their leaders. Our experienced Richmond Hill principals include Mary Anne Tiedemann at Richmond Hill Primary; Walt Barnes at Richmond Hill Elementary; Crystal Morales at Carver Elementary; Helen Herndon at Richmond Hill Middle; and Charles Spann at Richmond Hill High School. In addition, the Richmond Hill schools have a core of highly qualified returning staff. Through specific teacher improvement activities, the Bryan County schools will complete the implementation of the Georgia Performance Standards through a standards-based classroom setting.

“Despite statewide economic issues, the Bryan County Board of Education will be able maintain the majority of its quality programs for the 2010-2011 school year. This is attributable to its financial management, the continued growth in the system, and the taxpayers of Bryan County recognizing and funding a quality school district. The continued support of the schools by the Richmond Hill community is an integral part of the success of its schools. With this type of support, the Richmond Hill schools earn and deserve their excellent reputation.

“Programs are being maintained that ensure that our students are well prepared for the next level, whether it is college, technical college, the armed forces, or the workforce. Additional initiatives will be put in place to strengthen the Career, Technical, and Agriculture Education Program. This entails extending the Bryan County Schools CTAE workforce readiness program, where students receive actual work experience.

“The school system is optimistic about its athletic and extra-curricular programs. At Richmond Hill High School, a new athletic director and coaches bring a renewed enthusiasm to the athletic program at that school.

“The Bryan County schools will continue to support and challenge its best and brightest students as well as providing for its students with disabilities.”
