Board of Education members set policy, approve educational goals and curriculum changes, evaluate the educational program, and act on recommendations of the Superintendent of Schools. The Board also approves the annual budget and maintains a balanced budget at the end of the year. In addition, board members plan for the improvement and financing of facilities, act as a tribunal at employee and student hearings, and keep the public informed about school issues.
Board of Education
The Houston County Board of Education is responsible to the citizens of Houston County. To effectively represent and reflect the opinions of the community, it is imperative that parents, citizens, and business leaders take an active interest in the school system. Suggestions and open dialogue help the Board make decisions and assist in setting the course of education.
