Members of the Liberty County Board of Education were recently recognized for successfully completing board member training activities sponsored by the Georgia School Boards Association.
Harold Woods, Verdell Jones, Marcia Anderson, Becky Carter, Charlie Frasier, Carol Guyett and Lily Baker received certificates of recognition at the Aug. 11 BoE meeting.
Georgia was among the first states in the nation to require that local school board members receive training to ensure quality educational leadership. Board members receive training on topics such as  Georgia’s Quality Basic Education Act, budgeting and financing, legal and policy issues, school and community relations and the roles and responsibilities of the school board.
“By participating in training and board development activities, local school board members show their dedication to improving the educational system for the students within their communities,” said Jeannie M. Henry, GSBA executive director.   “Lifelong  learning doesn’t just apply to our students, it applies to all of us — especially to those in a leadership role in public education.”
The Georgia School Boards Association is a nonprofit representing Georgia’s locally elected school boards.
