CARROLLTON, GA For the sixth consecutive time, the Georgia School Boards Association has recognized the Carrollton Board of Education as an Exemplary Board of Achievement.
The recognition program is designed to showcase best practices in school governance and leadership. In addition, GSBA recognizes good school board governance to foster educational community cultures in order to advance student learning and achievement.
The board has been at the forefront of earning this prestigious designation since the GSBA began the process several years ago and was one of the first 36 school districts in the state to earn Exemplary status. This recognition program is a three-tier, three-year process and is considered GSBAs highest honor. This year, 55 of the 180 school boards across the state were recognized.
In 1998, the Georgia School Boards Association was one of the first school board associations in the nation to develop a program of standards for local boards of education.
A board must complete nine requirements to be considered for the Exemplary Board designation. One of these includes earning continuing education credits via classes and training. Carrollton BOE members have exceeded this training requirement while achieving high marks in the other required areas.
