BCSD Celebrates Local School Board Members
Updated: Mar 17
The Baldwin County School District is joining in a statewide celebration this week to salute the efforts of our local school board members. The week of March 15-19 has been proclaimed School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia. The week-long observance calls attention to the contributions of local boards of education. As constitutional officers of Georgia, school board members are responsible for setting educational policies, employing school personnel, providing buildings and equipment, operating a transportation system, and disbursing school funds. As community leaders, school board members serve as advocates for the children in local public schools. They must study, evaluate, and decide what actions are in the best interest of students.
The Baldwin County Board of Education has been recognized by the Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) as a 2020 Exemplary Board. This is the fourth year in a row that the Board has received this recognition for exceeding the criteria set forth by GSBA and showcasing best practices in school governance and leadership. Baldwin County was one of 56 school boards in Georgia to earn this prestigious award.
The Baldwin County School Board consists of the following school board members:
Dr. Gloria Wicker (District 1)
Ms. Shannon D. Hill (District 2)
Mr. Lyn Chandler (District 3)
Mr. John Jackson, Vice-Chair (District 4)
Mr. Wes Cummings, Chair (District 5)
Please join us in thanking our school board members for their dedication and commitment to the Baldwin County School District.
