Special Week Honors Georgia’s School Boards

 

We join in a statewide celebration to salute the efforts of local school board members. Governor Nathan Deal has proclaimed the week of March 14-18, 2016, School Board Appreciation Week in Georgia. The weeklong 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 and must study, evaluate and decide what actions are in the best interest of those students.

 

Pictured left to right are members of the Colquitt County Board of Education, front row: Bobbie Key,  Trudie Hill, Chairman Mary Beth Watson, and Patricia Anderson.  Back row: Vice-Chairman Robby Pitts, Superintendent Dr. Samuel DePaul, and Kevin Sumner.

 

 

The Georgia School Boards Association (GSBA) sponsors the celebration. The mission of GSBA is to ensure excellence in the governance of local school systems by providing leadership, advocacy and services, and by representing the collective resolve of Georgia’s 180 elected boards of education.

Title 1
Okapilco Elementary is a Title 1 school. Parents have the right to request information concerning the qualifications of their child's teachers - also known as the "Parent Notification Right to Know." Currently, all Okapilco teachers and paraprofessionals are 100% highly qualified. Okapilco Elementary has been identified as a Focus School as a result of the large gap in test scores from our high and low achieving students.
