What if...

Please take a moment and watch our new video. We are asking the public to think outside the box for ideas which are in the best interest and most beneficial for our kids and the future of the Chambers County School District. In a few weeks an online survey will be posted for the public to begin having input. We are also completing a demographic study to help us with future enrollment projections, and we are completing a facilities assessment at all of our campuses. After the survey results are in, we will hold town hall meetings to present the results and begin the conversation of how to proceed.

Please share this video. It is hosted here on our Webpage. It will be also be posted to our Facebook page.  Please share this video.


Employees of the Week

6 days ago


DECEMBER 2 - 6, 2019 


Lindsay Shaughnessy, Math teacher at Valley High School, has been selected as our Certified “Employee of the Week.” She and her husband, Derrick, have five “fur babies;” dogs Cooper and Isaac and cats Ewok, Willy, and Barbara.

            A native of Georgia, Lindsay graduated Roswell High School in 2008 before attending Kennesaw State University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics.

            “My teaching philosophy can vary depending on my students,” said Shaughnessy. “For those who are vocal about their distaste for mathematics, I tend to ask them about their feelings on certain words, topics and exercises. Voicing initial fears of the subject allows students to regain control and build confidence.”

            In her spare time, Lindsay enjoys DIY projects, interior design, family road trips, Atlanta Braves baseball, and spending time with her fur babies. She is also a Project 7 Club sponsor at VHS, and attends The Oaks Church in Opelika.


DECEMBER 2 - 6, 2019


Paula Smith, Lunchroom Manager at Bob Harding-Shawmut Elementary School, has been selected as our Support Staff “Employee of the Week.” Paula is married to Lamar Smith and they have two children; Shelby and Skylar.

            A native of Chambers County, Paula received an Accounting Certificate from Opelika Tech.

            “I like to hear the funny comments that students come up with when passing through the lunch line,” said Smith.

            In her spare time Paula enjoys watching Hallmark movies.

Majority to Minority Transfers
What is M to M transfer? M to M stands for majority to minority. An M to M transfer is where a student who is currently enrolled in a school where his/her race is in the majority chooses to transfer to a school within the district where his/her race would be in the minority. For example an African American student who is currently attending Eastside, JP Powell, or LaFayette High School may transfer to another school in the district where their race would be in the minority.
