Okaloosa County School District
- Education & Training
By working in a number of other significant school and district leadership positions, Mr. Chambers has built a comprehensive understanding of K-12 public education. These positions include serving as Okaloosa County’s Safe School’s Specialist from 2003-2005. Driven to learn more about every facet of K-12 public education, Mr. Chambers then served as an Assistant Principal at Niceville High School before being named the Principal at Longwood Elementary School from 2006-2008. During his tenure, Longwood Elementary earned the coveted No Child Left Behind Blue Ribbon School Award, which recognizes public schools for their progress in closing achievement gaps in student subgroups. His knowledge of classroom and school leadership in both the elementary and high school arena would prove invaluable as his leadership at Pryor Middle School helped to significantly improve student achievement scores each year in spite of the school’s rapidly growing Free and Reduced Lunch Rate. Because of his extensive knowledge of public education and student achievement, Mr. Chambers was named principal of Niceville High School in 2011 and served until he was asked to fill the role of Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction in 2012. He also served as the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources in 2018.
