Hart County BOE Wins State Recognition

Hart County Charter System School Board has been named a Georgia School Boards Association’s 2020 Exemplary School Board.

Hart County School Superintendent Jay Floyd made the announcement Monday.

The recognition program is designed to showcase best practices in school governance and leadership. GSBA recognizes good school board governance to foster educational community cultures in order to advance student learning and achievement.

Hart County Charter System exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn the honor of a 2020 Exemplary Board.

This is the second year the Hart County School Board has achieved this status, according to Floyd.

The GSBA Governance Team Recognition Program was developed by Georgia superintendents and board members based on the state board of education’s standards for effective governance to recognize exemplary leadership.

In 1998, the Georgia School Boards Association was one of the first school board associations in the nation to develop a program of standards for local boards of education.

The GSBA Board recognition program is a three-tiered program.
