Special week honors Georgia’s school boards
The Early County School System is joining a statewide celebration March 13-17 during School Board Appreciation Week to salute local school board members.
“Our board spends countless hours fulfilling its responsibilities and working together to continually improve our education system,” said Superintendent Dr. Bronwyn Ragan-Martin. “I am so proud to work with Early County School System board members, Chairman James Cannon, Vice- Chair Alice Hutchins, Billy Adams, Reginald Hall and Dan Williams.”
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.
