exemplary school board

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 district.  Suggestions and open dialogue help the Board make decisions and assist in setting the course of education.

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 Members

The Houston County Board is comprised of seven members elected to four-year terms.  The terms of members elected from even-numbered districts will expire December 31, 2022.  The terms of members from odd-numbered districts will expire December 31, 2024.  Every January, Board members elect a Chairperson and Vice Chairperson.  The Superintendent serves as an ex-officio member of the Board and acts as the Secretary-Treasurer.

About Our Meetings

The Houston County Board of Education typically meets twice a month.  The formal session is held the second Tuesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. at the central office located at 1100 Main Street in Perry.  The work session is held the Monday evening prior to the second Tuesday unless that Monday falls on a holiday.  Work sessions are held at 6:00 p.m. at various schools or the central office.  In addition, special meetings are called as needed.  Community meetings are held occasionally to keep residents informed about issues and to give citizens the opportunity to comment on Board initiatives.  Meetings are announced in advance through the local media and on the district's website. 

Addressing The Board

The Houston County Board of Education welcomes visitors and will hear any citizen and/or employee of the school district pursuant to the guidelines outlined in the Board Policy BCBD.  Board members will listen to comments without engaging in dialogue.  Any request will be considered with a written response provided when necessary.
