BoE sets key goals

During an all-day retreat this week at The Heritage Bank, the Liberty County Board of Education decided to stick with its five goals developed with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The board plans to make the information available to the public.

The five goals
1. Increase achievement levels for Liberty County students.
2. Provide a safe environment for learning and teaching.  
3. Improve performance of students, staff and the organization through results-driven professional learning that is standards-based, job embedded and collaborative.
4. Increase stakeholder involvement throughout the school system.
5. Integrate technology into the curriculum at all grade levels.

Georgia School Board Association consultant Bill Sampson told the board the goals were important in their search for a superintendent to replace Dr. Steve Wilmoth, who is leaving in June.
“Tell your superintendent candidates, ‘these are our goals.’ You will want to hire someone who shares your goals ... ” he said. “Ask the candidates how they feel about public involvement. You want people to buy in to what your school system is doing.”
He emphasized his point by saying, “If you don’t feed the public, they’re going to eat you.”
