About the BOE

  • The nine-member Clarke County Board of Education (BOE) is the official governing body for the Clarke County School District. It is responsible for policy-making, budget approval, evaluation of the superintendent, and other duties prescribed by law. Board members are elected to four-year terms. To contact a BOE member, click on the "Board Members" page in the above drop-down menu. 

    Please get in touch with the appropriate Clarke County School District office or school for information on a specific issue (such as school registration, disciplinary hearings, or employment). The school district's main number is 706-546-7721.
