18 Complete Leadership Class

Apr 20 2022

Congratulations to 18 Carroll County Schools employees for their completion of the school district’s new CLASS A Leadership Program. The Program was created in partnership with the Georgia Leadership Institute for School Improvement and geared specifically toward classified staff. 

CLASS A was created as a learning community focused on building leadership skills and practices for classified staff who have influence in their departments or areas. Curriculum focused on the common attributes of great leaders, leadership styles, attracting, growing and keeping engaged team members, customer service, and leadership branding.

The class consisted of personnel representing Human Resources and Student Services, Business, Technology, Transportation, Teaching and Learning, Food Service, Maintenance, Nursing, and Social Work.

Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Dr. Christi Teal said it was a highly successful program, and the district plans to continue to expand it to include school-based classified staff next school year.
