Bulloch County Schools' Aspiring Leaders Program is designed to support our school system's aspiring employee leaders. The program provides an understanding of how a strong sense of our district’s essentials of leadership along with professional skills and competencies help to shape effectiveness as a leader. BCS Aspiring Leaders are current assistant principals or teacher leaders who are preparing for future leadership roles within Bulloch County Schools. BCS Aspiring Leaders have the capability to make a significant difference in the current and future performance of student achievement and organizational effectiveness within our district.
