The Rockdale County Board of Education was recently honored as a 2018 Exemplary Board, the highest status in the Georgia School Boards Association Board Recognition Program, according to a press release. The Rockdale County BOE also earned Exemplary status in 2015 and 2016.
The GSBA Board Recognition Program was paused and revised during 2017 to require an even higher level of commitment from school boards and individual members.
GSBA Board Recognition, a three-year, three-tiered program, is designed to showcase best practices in school governance and leadership to foster educational community cultures in order to advance student learning and achievement. Only 35 school boards out of 180 elected school boards in the state have earned the status of 2018 Exemplary Board.
The mission of GSBA is to ensure excellence in the governance of local school systems by providing leadership, advocacy and services, and by representing the collective resolve of Georgia’s 180 elected boards of education.
