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.


Public Engagement

Who are you hearing from in your community? Are you layering your communications to include getting information, giving information and EXCHANGING information? If not, learn how critical it is to meaningfully engage stakeholders.

GSBA believes that the meaningful engagement of ALL stakeholders in your community can lead to a more well-informed citizenry and greater support and understanding. GSBA can assist your district in getting ALL voices in your community to the table.
