Calhoun City Schools is proud to announce the achievement and status of the Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2016 Exemplary School Board recognition.

The recognition program was designed to showcase best practices in school governance and leadership. GSBA recognizes good school board governance to foster educational community cultures in order to advance student learning and achievement.

Calhoun City Schools met and/or exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn this honor of a 2016 Exemplary Board. Calhoun City Schools consistently exceeds the standards for the highest award category each year.

“We are very proud of our Board of Education,” said Dr. Michele Taylor, superintendent.”They are committed to making the best decisions possible for our students, teachers and schools. We are blessed to have their leadership.”

The GSBA Governance Team Recognition Program was developed by Georgia superintendents and board members based on the state board of education’s standards for effective governance to recognize exemplary leadership.

In 1998, the Georgia School Boards Association was one of the first school board associations in the nation to develop a program of standards for local boards of education.

The GSBA Board recognition program is a three-year, three tiered program. For more information on the program you may visit the GSBA website at http://gsba.com/board-development/awards-recognition/ for awards and recognition.
