The Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) has chosen Gwinnett as the winner of the 2018 Governance Team of the Year award. The award is presented annually to one Georgia public school district’s board of education and superintendent who have achieved all-around success in their district. Finalists were vetted through a stringent application process and a visit by an impartial review team to vet the information in the application.
“We are so pleased to honor Gwinnett County as the Governance Team of the Year. They have exemplified, through work and service, what a high functioning board of education and superintendent look like,” said Katrina Young, GSBA President and Rockdale County Board of Education member.
There were 33 Georgia school districts that qualified and 10 that chose to submit applications.
The winner was chosen by a panel of national experts who perform various leadership roles in the field of public education.
Additional 2018 GSBA Governance Team of the Year Finalists include Bleckley County Schools, Chickamauga City Schools, Dawson County Schools, Effingham County Schools, Forsyth County Schools, Jefferson City Schools, Lumpkin County Schools, Pierce County Schools, and Schley County Schools.
