Elbert County School District Achieves 2014 GSBA Quality Board StatusGSBA

December 6, 2014– The Elbert County School District is proud to announce the achievement and status of the Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2014 Quality 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. 

The Elbert County Board of Education met and or exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn this honor of a 2014 Quality Board.  The criteria may be reviewed by clicking here for more information.

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 beginning with the Quality Board status.  For more information on the program you may visit the GSBA website for awards and recognition or click here to view the criteria for all tiers of the program.
