Greenville County Schools is saluting its twelve school board members during South Carolina School Board Recognition Month.
As advocates for student success, school board members are leaders, champions, and public servants to the students and staff of Greenville County Schools.
As a part of School Board Recognition Month, board members will participate in an official signing of the South Carolina School Board Member Ethical Principles during their January school board meeting on Tuesday, January 28. By signing the principles, school board members publicly vow to uphold effective governance principles and pledged to improve public education in their community. See Board Policy BA, School Board Operations, for specific responsibilities of the School Board.
This year’s theme — School Board Strong — highlights the unique role Greenville’s school board plays in championing and advocating for quality education and the ownership they take for governing our schools. As the elected representatives of the people in Greenville County, they embody our local communities’ voice and vision for our public schools.
GCS School Board trustees hold leadership positions both within and outside the district. They develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. The GCS School Board oversees the governance of Greenville County Schools, the state’s largest school system, which includes more than 77,000 students, 10,000 employees, and a budget of more than $600 million.
