MAR. 13, 2023 – We join in a statewide celebration to recognize the efforts of local school board members. March 13-17, 2023 is School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia. The weeklong observance calls attention to the contributions of local boards of education. View the Governor’s Proclamation.
As constitutional officers of Georgia, school board members are responsible for setting educational policies, employing school personnel, providing buildings and equipment, operating a transportation system and disbursing school funds. As community leaders, school board members serve as advocates for the children in local public schools and must study, evaluate and decide what actions are in the best interest of those students.
The Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) sponsors the celebration. The mission of GSBA 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.
