Ware School District Achieves 2016 GSBA Distinguished School Board Status

The Ware County School District is proud to announce the achievement and status of the Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2016 Distinguished School Board recognition. 

The recognition program was 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. 

The Ware County Board of Education met the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn this honor of a 2016 Distinguished Board. The requirements included action items in the areas of Strategic Planning, Georgia Vision Project, Self-Assessment, Superintendent Evaluation, Board Member Training Requirements, and Accreditation.

Developed by Georgia superintendents and board members, the GSBA Board Recognition Program is based on the state board of education’s standards for effective governance to recognize distinguished leadership. 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-year, three tiered program. Levels of recognition include Quality Board, Distinguished Board, and Exemplary Board.   

Congratulations are extended to Superintendent Jim L. LeBrun and Ware County Board of Education members Chairman Barry Deas, Vice-Chairman Franklin L. Pinckney, Denton Dial, Edward Tyre, Rusty Ganas, Oneida Oliver-Sanders, and Dee Meadows on this fine achievement.
