James Tager comes to us from Volusia County, where he’s been an educator for more than three decades. Mr. Tager has some great ideas for us, but he’s also embracing our Flagship Programs. Since the Flagships were unveiled, nearly two dozen programs are now thriving in our schools and additional Flagships are added yearly. We are seeing our students gravitate to the programs, whether it’s in robotics and engineering at Belle Terre Elementary, agronomy and biotechnology at Buddy Taylor Middle School, or financial literacy at Matanzas High School. More than 8,100 students are experiencing our Flagships and exploring careers! 14 © 2017 | Flagler County Chamber of Commerce and its licensors.
