More Opportunities for Hazel Green Students!

Big image
In a global culture driven by electronic information, businesses and government agencies use technology to protect their data and computer systems. The demand for IT security professionals is at an all-time high, and we are preparing our students to capitilize on that opportunity! Hazel Green High School plans to offer a Cyber Security Curriculum approved by the Alabama State Department of Education. If there is enough interest, we will be offering the beginning classes in the fall. For planning purposes, students who would like to participate in the program need to complete the interest survey.

We are preparing our students to succeed at the next level!

Celebrating Perfection!

Our perfect attendance students for the third grading period were treated to a pizza lunch! Congratulations to all the students and parents who made school a priority!
