The Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) has announced the week of March 16-20, 2020 as “School Board Member Appreciation Week.”
CCSD joins a statewide celebration this week to salute the efforts of local school board members. 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 Cherokee County School Board has, in the past, been named a School Board of Distinction by GSBA and commended for governance and leadership by AdvancED.
Thank you for your dedication and hard work on behalf of the children of Cherokee County!
