The Gainesville City Schools Board of Education was named a 2019 Quality School Board by the Georgia School Boards Association at a conference held June 7 and 8 in Savannah.

According to a press release, “The recognition showcases best practices in school governance and leadership among Georgia public school boards and recognizes board governance that fosters educational community cultures advocating student learning and achievement.”

Just 21 of the 180 public school boards in Georgia earned the recognition.

“We are proud that our board of education maintained ‘quality status,’ and we look forward to aiming higher in the coming years,” Gainesville City Schools Superintendent Jeremy Williams said in the press release. “We have amazing elected individuals representing the community and a great collective voice for our students and staff.”
