Thank you to everyone who attended the December 5, 2013, Board of Education meeting. We appreciate your input. Out of respect for our community's questions from last night, the Board of Education has scheduled an information session for the public on Thursday, December 19, 6:00 p.m. in the cafeteria of the William James Educational Complex on Williams Road in Statesboro. We will give an overview of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and how it affects school system employees while carrying out their official duties.

It is our hope and intent to clarify the rights and expectations of our employees, so that we can all move forward to fulfill the mission of our school system.
