Written by  Hayley Green, BCS Friday, 14 March 2014 09:48

  The Georgia Assembly has proclaimed March 17 - 21 as School Board Appreciation Week, and the weeklong observance calls attention to the contributions of local boards of education.

Bulloch County Board of EducationBulloch County Board of Education 

  Superintendent Charles Wilson said “Citizens elect board members to represent the community’s voice on education matters and to set the vision for the school district.  Our board spends countless hours fulfilling its responsibilities and working together to continually improve our education system.  As the men and women citizens elect to represent them in education matters, school boards represent a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in education.”

 

  The men and women serving the school districtare: Cheri Wagner, Dr. LeVon Wilson, Mike Sparks, Steve Hein, Vernon Littles, Anshul Jain, Mike Herndon, and Maurice Hill. 

 

  As constitutional officers of Georgia, school board members are responsible for setting educational policies, employing school personnel, providing buildings and equipment, operating a transportation system and disbursing school funds. As community leaders, school board members serve as advocates for the children in local public schools and must study, evaluate and decide what actions are in the best interest of those students.

 

  The Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) sponsors the celebration.
