Jefferson City Schools is proud to announce the achievement and status of the
Georgia School Boards Association’s (GSBA) 2022 Exemplary School
Board Recognition. This is the sixth consecutive year JCS has achieved
exemplary status.

JCS BOE Chairman Ronnie Hopkins, along with Superintendent Dr. Donna
McMullan and other board members, accepted the award at the 2022 Georgia
School Boards Association conference held in Atlanta last week.
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. The GSBA Board recognition program is a three-tiered
program with “exemplary” being the highest level.

The JCS BOE also was recognized with the 2022 Leading Edge Award at the
conference. This unique achievement recognizes the innovative design and
implementation of projects and programs throughout JCS that are having a
significant and positive impact on students.

“We are fortunate to have such a rich tradition of cooperation, service and
educational distinction throughout our system,” says McMullan. “Our Board of
Education is truly honored to be recognized for these awards. These
achievements are made possible by their dedication, exemplary service and high
standards for our students, staff and parents. We look forward to continuing the
legacy of educational excellence!”

JCS previously was awarded and still holds the title of Governance Team of
the Year.
