As class resumes in Hall County next week, school leaders are seeking more flexibility from state rules. Schools would have to meet specific performance targets, which the district will set in its new contract with the state department, according to Kevin Bales, Hall’s director of middle and secondary education. Bales said high-performing schools could have flexibility of class size, more say in school funding and spending decisions and waivers from some teacher certification requirements.
