Dawson County School System once again achieves 2019 GSBA Exemplary School Board StatusDawson County Schools is proud to announce the achievement and status of the Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2019 Exemplary School Board recognition. The recognition program is designed to showcase best practices in school governance and leadership. GSBA recognizes good school board governance to foster educational community cultures in order to advance student learning and achievement.

Dawson County School's Board of Education met and/or exceeded the criteria set forth by GSBA to earn the honor of a 2019 Exemplary Board. This year 55 of the 180 public school boards earned the Exemplary Board status.
The GSBA Governance Team Recognition Program was developed by Georgia superintendents and board members 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 to view the criteria for all tiers of the program.
