Bulloch County school board pursues middle path on flexibility option
BOE LoGoRGB logoWeb
On the recommendation of Superintendent Charles Wilson, the Bulloch County Board of Education is pursuing a "flexibility option" that is a middle course between the status quo and creating a charter school system. All eight board members were present for last Thursday's meeting, but one abstained, making the vote 7-0 to go the "Investing in Educational Excellence" route, nicknamed IE2 or "IE Squared." Over time, the Bulloch County Schools may evolve more school-level governance, with each school setting its own student achievement goals and deciding, with parent input, how to go about meeting them, Wilson said.
