Tift BOE named 'Quality School Board' by GSBA


The Tift County Board of Education has met all criteria and is being recognized by the Georgia School Boards Association as a GSBA Quality School Board for 2013.

The new GSBA Board Recognition Program began its implementation on July 1, 2012, said Jeannie M. Henry, GSBA executive director, in a letter to Superintendent Patrick Atwater. The program is a three-year, three-tiered program beginning with the Quality Board status. Atwater noted the steps have to be done one at a time.

The local board has achieved the first level of recognition. Henry congratulated the board on their leadership and school governance.

Atwater presented the certificate to Chairwoman Kim Rutland. He said it’s in recognition of all board members, who also received a certificate.

“We are head and hands above most with where we are with this,” Rutland said.
