Mr. Will Schofield is a recognized influencer in the category of education. He is focused and driven by a desire for educational excellence that permeates throughout his district and reaches out into the communities and area businesses. He leads by example. While supporting the historical mission of the common school, Schofield’s belief is that our nation’s current policies are causing schools to neglect an important cohort of learners, our “most able.” By utilizing the concept of “outside innovation” and embracing the capacity of 21st century technology, Schofield believes we are on the verge of a restructuring renaissance regarding how we meet the individual needs of the 56 million boys and girls in our public schools. He continues to effectively guide the school district through these difficult and challenging financial times and through his vision he has managed to create an atmosphere of expectancy and hope; all the while keeping kids as the central focus. In spite of difficult and adverse circumstances, Hall County has realized a steady growth in test scores. Additionally, new and innovative programs continue to be cultured to meet community and societal demands.
