Carroll County Schools Celebrates Board Appreciation Week

Mar 16 2018

The Carroll County School System is joining in a statewide celebration this week to salute the efforts of local school board members. The week of March 12-16, 2018, has been proclaimed School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia. The weeklong observance calls attention to the contributions of local boards of education.  “Citizens elect board members to represent the community’s voice on education matters and to set the vision for the school district,” said Superintendent Scott K. Cowart. “We are extremely fortunate to have a dedicated Board that is passionate about providing premier opportunities for all students in Carroll County.” The men and women serving our school district are: Mr. Bart Cater, Chair; Mr. Donald Nixon, Vice Chair; Mr. Rob Cleveland, Dr. Jon Anderson, Mrs. Sandra Morris, Dr. Robert Pinckney and Mr. Clayton Kierbow.

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.
