The mission of the Georgia School Boards Association 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 elected boards of education.
GSBA has 180 members, the local boards of education governing the state’s 180 public school districts. GSBA’s members are divided into 14 districts. Each system has one delegate who represents its board and “votes” at the Association’s annual business meeting, the Delegate Assembly. This process ensures that all members are represented in the development and adoption of the Association’s positions, policies and selection of the Board of Directors.
GSBA/GSSA Legislative Site Visits
In an effort to have board members and superintendents present at the Capitol throughout each session of the General Assembly, GSBA and GSSA staff will be hosting legislative site visits each year in February. You may attend on any day, however in order to spread folks out, our suggested day for members is listed below. Please click your preferred date to register so we have a general idea of the number of participants. (These visits are usually held in February.)
There will be a one hour update, 9:00 – 10:00, from the GSBA and GSSA staff to give you the latest information on what’s happening in the legislature.
Board members should contact their legislators to let them know you will be at the Capitol on the date you have chosen. Ask for a meeting.
