Whitfield County Board of Education

  •  The Whitfield County Board of Education was recognized as a Georgia School Board Association (GSBA) 2021 Exemplary School Board. Our board met and/or exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to become one of 58, out of 180 public school boards, to earn the Extinguished Board status. The GSBA School Board Recognition Program requires a high level of commitment from school board members. The ultimate goal is to provide a platform based on governance standards which challenges boards, but creates a culture of success for students and communities. For more information on the GSBA School Board Recognition Program, please visit www.gsba.com

    The Whitfield County Board of Education is made up of five members. Four of the members represent one of four voting districts with a fifth member serving at-large to represent the entire school district. Whitfield County school board members serve alternating four-year terms. 

Responsibilities of the Board

  • The Board of Education is responsible for setting policy and managing the budget for the school district. The superintendent serves as the school board’s chief executive officer and, in partnership with their staff, is responsible for the daily operation of the school district. The superintendent reports directly to the school board and is responsible for carrying out local school board policies, the policies set by the Georgia Board of Education, and ensuring compliance with state and federal education laws.
