Audio: Chairman Agnew asks “What is CTAE”

The Chattooga County Board of Education members attended a budget training session Tuesday, February 12th in the Board Room.

Listen to the shocking moment when 2-year veteran and Chairman of the Board of Education John Agnew displays his knowledge of one the largest curriculum items on the budget, when he asks “What is CTAE?”.  Assistant Superintendent Jared Hosmer answered Chairman Agnew’s question while the audience sat in stunned disbelief.

The video below was created by the Audio Video Technology and Film class at CHS. All of the footage included in the video depicts CHS students who are involved in CTAE courses at the school. All of the footage is from events and activities that have taken place so far this school year (2018-2019).
