DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – Dawson County Schools is one of 10 finalists for the Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) 2018 Governance Team of the Year Award.
The award is presented annually to one Georgia public school district’s board of education and superintendent who have achieved all-around success in their district. This recognition is deeply rooted in the components of the Georgia Vision Project’s research-based recommendations for Georgia’s public schools.
These finalists were vetted through a stringent application process and a visit by an impartial review team to vet the information in the application.
“This group of ten school districts from all over Georgia exemplify what it means to achieve at the highest levels. We are very pleased with this inaugural class for the Governance Team of the Year,” said Katrina Young, GSBA President and Rockdale County Board of Education member.
The winner will be announced at the GSBA/GSSA Annual Conference at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta, December 6, 2018, during a banquet honoring these outstanding governance teams. There were 33 Georgia school districts that qualified and 10 that chose to submit applications.
The winner will be chosen by a panel of national experts who perform various leadership roles in the field of public education.
The other finalists are Bleckley County Schools, Chickamauga City Schools, Effingham County Schools, Forsyth County Schools, Gwinnett County Schools, Jefferson City Schools, Lumpkin County Schools, Pierce County Schools and Schley County Schools.
