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’s mission is to assist boards in achieving excellence in governance. We have developed numerous tools to do this. The newest is School Board U, an online professional development system designed with school board members in mind. Our evaluation and assessments tools help boards focus on areas they wish to strengthen. We are pleased to release an improved Board Recognition Program with added criteria. This program operates the same as the last 3-tiered process using Quality, Distinguished and Exemplary Board levels. For more information, visit Awards and Recognitions program.

The links in the Resource and Related links sections at the bottom of this page will guide boards and superintendents through the steps necessary to build an annual board development plan, provide information on GSBA’s Awards and Recognitions program, links to School Board U, and information on the annual and summer conferences.
The following outlines what Georgia law requires as far as training:
New Board Members – Total of 15 hours of training
Board Members With One or More Years of Service – Total of 9 hours
GSBA has designed a board development program, approved by the state board, to meet all of the requirements.
