BoE aims at state standards
Placeholder Image
The Liberty County Board of Education is moving to join 110 other school boards in Georgia in documenting that it meets standards set by the school board association.
A committee of BoE members, school staff and citizens has been formed to check the school system’s policy and performance against criteria established by the Georgia School Board Association.
Interim Superintendent Harley Grove said Liberty already meets many of the GSBA standards and merely needs to document that and work on a few other areas.
Citizens Dave Smith and Verdell Jones joined Waldo Pafford Elementary School Principal Dorothy Cottom and Lewis Frazier Middle School Principal Tom Alexander on the committee with BoE Chairman Lily Baker and members Carol Guyett and Becky Carter.
The committee met last week.
The GSBA sets standards in eight areas:
• Vision/philosophy/goals  
• Systematic improvement  
• Organizational structure  
• Board operations:  Policy development  
• Board operations:  Board meetings  
• Board operations:  Personnel  
• Board operations:  Financial management  
• Board/staff/community relations  
Liberty BoE already meets the standards in the areas of financial management and personnel.
