Hamilton Southeastern Schools Announces 2022-23 HSEngaged Cohort

Hamilton Southeastern Schools is continuing its community engagement program, giving participants a behind-the-scenes look at operations.

A new cohort has been selected to take part in HSEngaged, a 10-month community engagement program, aimed at giving participants a deeper understanding of Hamilton Southeastern Schools.

The program launched in 2021 with 29 individuals and has since expanded to include 36 individuals who are either parents of current Hamilton Southeastern students and/or live within the school community.

“Participants will engage in extended dialogue with leadership and develop an understanding of how decisions and programs are implemented to foster a culture of academic excellence,” according to Emily Pace Abbotts, director of school and community relations.

More than 150 people applied for this year’s HSEngaged program. Participants were selected through an application process based on their affiliation with HSE Schools, their understanding of issues and challenges, their involvement in the community and their desire to assist in sharing HSE Schools’ vision throughout the community.

HSEngaged meets monthly from August through May. The program touches on a variety of topics from business management to academic programs, student services, facilities, operations and more.
