Board of Education Achieves Exemplary Board Status

Colquitt County School District proudly announces the achievement and status of the Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2023 Exemplary School Board recognition.  The recognition program showcases best practices in school governance and leadership. GSBA recognizes school boards dedicated to creating a culture of advancing student learning and achievement. 

Colquitt County Board of Education met and/or exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn the honor of a 2023 Exemplary Board. The criteria may be reviewed by clicking here for more information.

“I am excited that our Board has once again been named an Exemplary Board,” shared Mary Beth Watson, 2023 Board Chair. “This recognition indicates each member’s commitment to continuing education and maintaining the highest ethical standards as we carry out our service. It is a privilege to serve with this wonderful group.”

Georgia Superintendents and board members developed the GSBA Governance Team Recognition Program 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-tiered program. For more information on the program, you may visit the GSBA website for awards and recognition or view the criteria for all program tiers.
