Board Member District 6
The Georgia Constitution requires that an elected school board oversee each school system. I am the
state elected official for the Walton County Board of Education District 6. I was re-elected by the citizens on Nov 2012 for an additional four year term. I represent the citizenry of District 6 in Walton County Georgia on important schools issues such as:
A. Buying and selling school property
(including the power of condemnation),
B. Calling elections to authorize a Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) and bond elections to authorize the issuance of bonded debt.
C. Making the policies and rules necessary to govern the school system.
D. Reorganization and consolidation of schools within our control.
E. Authority to hire employees on the recommendation of the superintendent.
Members of a local school board make decisions on almost every aspect of public school operations.
