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.
Through a comprehensive grassroots network, the association advocates for the legislative positions approved by delegates from member boards at the annual Delegate Assembly. By adhering to effective communications strategies, GSBA strives to keep members up-to-date on education issues and best practices.
GSBA’s advocacy program includes having a presence at the table when education policy and legislation are being considered. This activity is year round. Members are included in numerous ways to assure that the association’s positions represent our membership. Communications efforts to inform stakeholders include print and online publications, email, web and face-to-face communications.
The 2019 School Boards Appreciation Week in Georgia was held March 18-22. GSBA is proud to serve the state’s locally elected boards of education. GSBA has developed numerous ways to assist local systems in honoring local boards and board members! THANKS for all you do for Georgia public school students!
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.
