Partners In Education

Partners in Education (PIE) is a cooperative effort of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, Gainesville City Schools and Hall County Schools. From mentors and tutors, to attendance contests, rewards for high achievement to providing supplemental instruction and motivational recognition for student achievement, the impact of the partnerships and quality of involvement is exceptional. The mission of the Partner in Education Program is to establish and foster a voluntary cooperative relationship between the school and industry through their mutual adoption of one another and to support and enrich the existence of both. Partners in Education, created and coordinated by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, is a joint effort with the Chamber of Commerce, Hall County and Gainesville City School Systems. Established in 1990, the program has supported the formation of over 250 business-education partnerships which serve to enrich the educational process and strengthen our schools. These partnerships foster closer links between schools and the business community and are essential in preparing a better educated workforce, thereby supporting economic development. The program helps to bridge the gap between the community and its schools for the mutual benefit of students and the residents of Gainesville-Hall County. Business partners engaged in the program will gain firsthand experience along with many benefits the program offers. Successful collaboration and cultivated relationships will afford both partners many rewards and satisfaction if the right components are in place. We would like to invite you to become a Partner in Education team member for the school to enhance the excitement and knowledge for the students in this community.   If you are interested in becoming a PIE with us and engage in the student growth of our students, please feel out the form that is attached and return it to Sugar Hill Academy of Talent and Career, ATTN:  Dr Chandler. If you have any question about the program, please feel free to contact Dr Jefferey Chandler at 770-503-1749, ext 7176 or email at
