ATLANTA – The Stephens County Board of Education was one of six school boards in the state to be named a Georgia School Boards Association “School Board of Distinction.” The award was given at the association’s annual conference held in Atlanta on December 4-5, 2009. The Board of Distinction designation is given to boards that achieve the following:

  • Have a stated plan to integrate technology at the governance level of the local district


Participation in the GSBA Standards for Local Boards of Education and the Board of Distinction program is voluntary.

Details on the Standards and the Board of Distinction are available on GSBA’s website: www.gsba.com.
