The Georgia School Board Association (GSBA) has named the Madison County Board of Education (BOE) a “School Board of Distinction.”
The Madison County BOE now joins an elite group of school boards in the state. In fact, less than 30 percent of the boards of education in the state of Georgia have earned “distinction” status.
“The Georgia School Boards Association and Georgia School Superintendents Association challenge their constituents to reach for higher levels of excellence by acquiring the Board of Distinction classification,” Sis Henry, executive director of GSBA said.
“The Madison County Board of Education has distinguished themselves in key areas of organizational structure.”
Dr. Mitch McGhee, superintendent of Madison County Schools, praised the local school board.
“I am proud to work for a board of education that puts the education of children the wellbeing of the faculty and staff and overall professionalism before personal agendas and private interests,” he said.
The Madison County Board of Education will be honored at the GSBA state conference in Atlanta, Friday, Dec. 5, for earning the Board of Distinction classification.
