Atlanta, GA – Carrollton City Schools Board of Education has been recognized by the Georgia School Board Association (GSBA) as being among the first 36 Georgia school boards to earn the GSBA Exemplary Board status. The Carrollton City Schools Board of Education, (CCS BOE), has been at the forefront of earning this prestigious designation since the GSBA began the process.

Carrollton City Schools Board of Education Chairman Dr. Mike Rothschild was excited to learn the CCS BOE had earned the designation. “We expect our teachers and leaders to utilize professional development to stay at the forefront of education. The GSBA has provided an avenue for school boards to also increase their knowledge and effectiveness. The Board saw this opportunity as a way to lead by example and to be as good as we can possibly be for our students, teachers and city.”

The Carrollton City Schools Board of Education had previously earned Quality Board and Distinguished Board status in the inaugural years each of those designations being available.

“This is a wonderful accomplishment by our Board,” said Mrs. Katie Williams, Carrollton’s most recently elected Board Member. “Through the training to earn Exemplary Board status, we have learned more and learned it faster than we could have otherwise. The continuing education components have been outstanding in helping us function at the highest level. I hope our community is as excited as I am to be part of only 36 Boards statewide to earn this distinction.”

A Board must complete nine areas of requirement to be considered for the Exemplary Board designation. One of these includes earning continuing education credits via classes and training. CCS BOE members have completed over 78 hours of study while achieving high marks in the other required areas.
