Carrollton, GA – Carrollton City Schools Board of Education held its regular monthly meeting Tuesday January 12th. Two agenda items involved the Board of Education itself. Three Board members, who were re-elected in November, took their oaths of office early in the meeting. The oaths were administered by Carrollton City Schools Superintendent Dr. Kent Edwards. The re-elected members are Dr. Mike Rothschild (at-large), Mr. Greg Dothard (Ward One) and Dr. Jimmy Pope (Ward Four). As a nod to the educational advances employed by the school system, Dr. Rothschild attended the meeting and took the oath of office using audio-visual technology as he was out of town.
