Heat Advisory

Due to the heat advisory in the forecast for today, HCS will be operating under our heightened awareness weather protocols.  The Heightened Awareness protocols will remain in effect throughout the duration of the heat advisory. Our schools will take extra precautions to ensure the safety of our students by limiting outdoor activities and keeping students hydrated.  Our middle and high schools will be utilizing the Alabama High School Athletic Association guidelines for outdoor heat for all our students involved in any extracurricular activities, such as sports, band, etc.

HCS Advanced Manufacturing Program in the National Spotlight Again

This week’s edition of EdTech Magazine is recognizing the educational opportunities that Huntsville City Schools is providing for students through industry and university partnerships.  EdTech’s look into the “Resurgence of 3D Printers in Modern Learning Environments”  highlights the collaboration of Huntsville City Schools with Auburn University and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center (formerly known as AMRDEC), calling it “one of the most unique partnerships” in education. The article noted how students can “work on real-world projects and participate in problem-solving and research.”

Huntsville City Schools became the first K-12 school district in the nation to join into a partnership with Auburn University’s National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME) alongside the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center to further the education and workforce development in additive manufacturing.  A signing ceremony was held last October in the Jemison High Advanced Manufacturing Facility.  The partnership will work to further student interest in STEM fields in Huntsville City Schools and provide a high quantity and caliber of talented graduates.
