Bible History Schools for 2012-2013 Announced
Thanks to increased commitments from the Chattanooga community, a Bible history teacher has been placed in Ooltewah High School for the 2012-2013 academic year where access to Bible history had not been available. We welcome Mr. Jason Hamrick to this new post, beginning August 2012.
In all, Bible in the Schools has committed to provide funding to the Hamilton County Department of Education for Bible history courses at 20 schools in 2012-2013:
As in every year since 1922, when Bible history was first offered in the Chattanooga public schools, the Department of Education will receive a cash contribution for the cost to fund the teachers in each school. This grant will cover 100 percent of teacher salaries, benefits and classroom expenses. Seventeen Bible history teachers are employed by the Department of Education at 20 schools.
