Higher Opportunities for Teachers (HOT Committee)
The Higher Opportunities for Teachers (HOT) Committee functions as a support system for Oak Grove Elementary faculty and staff members who want to engage in professional development experiences that go beyond those offered through DeKalb County and Oak Grove Elementary School. The HOT Committee reviews professional proposals initiated by staff and utilizes Oak Grove Foundation funds to support experiences that both align with the mission of Oak Grove Elementary School and positively impact student achievement through professional development.
Funds for HOT programming come from the Foundation's Annual Fundraiser.
Teachers and staff members who are awarded professional development funding must either write articles about their experience or give presentations to Oak Grove faculty detailing the knowledge acquired from the experience.
