Conyers, GA– Rockdale County Public Schools (RCPS) is proud to announce that the Rockdale County Board of Education has earned the Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2013 Quality School Board recognition.

“I truly appreciate the work of our board members and their commitment to education and to the children and families in Rockdale County,” states Superintendent Autry.  “This revised recognition program is new this year and required our Board to meet several criteria, such as provide evidence of a system strategic plan, demonstrate accreditation compliance, and meet all training requirements to earn this first level of distinction.  We are fortunate to have this dedicated board, elected by citizens, to ensure that quality public education remains a top priority for this community.”

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 RCPS Board of Education met and/or exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn this honor of a 2013 Quality Board.  The criteria may be reviewed by clicking here for more information.

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-year, three tiered program beginning with the Quality Board status.  For more information on the program you may visit the GSBA website for awards and recognition or click here to view the criteria for all tiers of the program.
